How does an Electric Car work ? | Tesla Model S

44855 ratings | 2897217 views
Electric cars are making big waves in the automobile world. These noise-free, pollution-free and high-performance vehicles are expected to make their I.C. engine counterparts obsolete by 2025. This video will unveil the hidden technologies behind the Tesla Model S, which recently became the world’s fastest accelerating car. We will see how electric cars have achieved superior performance by analyzing the technology behind the induction motor, inverter, lithium ion battery power source, regenerative braking and above all, the synchronized vehicle mechanism, in a logical, step-by-step manner. The working and features of Tesla car is explained here with help of animation.

Great system in the car and is the near future but reading the comments is like observing a mass hallucination driven by self-serving bias. The car is a coal burner in most cases. Lithium is rare. Lithium battery fires are hard to put out as they release oxygen. The electronics are marvelous but not new and autopilot has driven some drivers to their graves, There fixed it.

let me burst the bubble, the power to weight ratio Should including battery and gas weight, also maintenance gonna knock out your income because you cant do it your self so they gonna rape your wallet so after 5 years when you do the math you ll find that a v4 engine was gonnabe cheaper after factoring in every thing assuming lithium didnt blow up and made you do the math on wheelchair

Did somebody compare the Weight of elctric cars with traditional cars? You will found that Model S is more than two ton. Audi A4 is only 1.6 ton. Dose it make sinse to compare the engine weight?? another question is, Is it so clear to produce the battery? The total efficiency and the eco-friendly of electrical and traditional car nobody can exactly calculate.

A car failed by all standards We are in the Middle East's largest car consumer in the world For cars that run on lithium batteries do not tolerate a temperature of more than 40 degrees Celsius In the Middle East, it reaches more than 60 degrees, so I support the use of electric cars and not modern cars so keep this cars working in the Arctic or Antarctica only

This doesn't doesn't matter. Where does it get its power from? Most power is 70% coal, i think 20% natural gas or others and 10 percent other renewables. The real way to stop pollution is to use bio fuel, which pollutes around 70% less.

As innovative as this idea is, I just don't see myself driving an electric car. I enjoy working on conventional gasoline cars and researching to understand the complex engine bay (when it comes to cars, there's always something to learn). I enjoy the power I feel when I accelerate, and the sweet release of shifting at 4k rpms. An electric car takes away the entire car and driver experience. Having to work on and maintain my car, to me, is what makes it truly mine. Besides, electric cars are no cleaner than gasoline inductive cars. They rely on mined and burned coal to power them. The only "clean" car is one that is solar powered.

"Selective Braking" huh ? While it is true throttle control is less responsive on IC cars - "Selective Bracking" -AKA Dynamic Stability Control that's been on the "inferior" IC cars for YEARS -- and they are used without the need of LSD!! Hate to brake it to you, Tesla is probably buying their DSC System ("Selective Braking" as you called it) from the same supplier (BOSCH maybe?) where other inferior IC car manufacturers bought their DSC System from ! You hidden bias in your report is trying to make it sound as if : (A.) DSC (Selective Braking as you called it) is exclusive to electric car and (B.) Tesla invented it. You might be just an Elon fanboy but your video sure makes you sound like a Tesla's paid hitman.

why nobody thinking about two section battery and two alternator. the motor run use one section battery and after power drain its auto switch to the second battery to continue. the same time charging the first battery. chargeless?

Why don't 'they' make fan's behind a grill so that when you drive the fan's start rotating and deliver extra power to charge the batteries while driving, for more miles?

Excuse me for incomprehensible question. When we use brake, so no power supplies to motor. If the motor still runs, is it possible for motor to creates the current flows back to battery? I'm interested in electric vehicles, but I'm only freshman.

I have an electric vehicle, a Tesla Model S. I don't however have any links to buy Lithium Ion batteries, but I am sure if you search YouTube, there are many people that buy and review Lithium Ion or Lithium Ion Polymer batteries since they are now commonly used in drones, RC cars etc. Your application and budget would determine what Lithium Ion batteries would best work for you.
Ky Bousong (12 days ago)
wow, i see.thanks you so much. You seem comprehensible about electric car a lot. Are you a electrical vehicle? and do you know any link which can be trusted to buy lithium lon batteries or else?

The range as a disadvantage is somewhat inaccurate. For the tesla you can get 244 mi on a full charge with the ac blazing . Although true if you consider 244 mi short.

Great video, but I do have a question about the rings at 1:10. I am slightly confused about what they are used for. Even without rings, a circuit can be formed using the ends of the rotor, so why are the rings needed? Does it increase the performance? If so, how? I have only taken one physics class in my university, so sorry if this is a stupid question.

Great vid. EVs have already made their IC counterparts 'obsolete'. If you mean something more along the lines of supplanting ICs by 2025, I SO want that to be true, but with all the right wing government corruption & resistance from the oil & car industries I find it damn near impossible to believe.

Love the video.. your really should explain how deadly the batteries are to make so your buying something that's already destroyed part of the world and when that battery dies and it will you will in fact cause more damage producing them batteries than buying ten cars and driving em tell 500k miles for just two batteries so much for going green

No problem, there is a lot of information out there from organizations that have studied this pretty closely.
mr smith (12 days ago)
Captain Crunch appreciate your info and link
Captain Crunch (16 days ago)
Looks like you don't know much about EV batteries. EV batteries are mostly Nickel, with some Cobalt and Aluminum, although the Cobalt content is dropping to very little. Making an electric car is not even remotely close to buying 10 cars and driving them 500k miles, the extra energy required is about 10% to 20%. Much of that information can be seen here: https://www.ucsusa.org/clean-vehicles/electric-vehicles/life-cycle-ev-emissions#.Wu6kLaQvxEY

These cars are not polluting free. Where does the power these cars are charged with. Nobody talks about this. It's coal power and nuclear power. And how environmentally friendly are the batteries that are being used. Everything with electric car is suspicious. And it has nothing to do with global warming. Global warming we have hated many times in the history of the Jews. And the Tesla system is based on FREE Power. Not that one has to recharge batteries. This only has with extra tax. Everything is just hoax.
sultan husnoo (8 days ago)
"nobody talks about this" :D :D :D believe me EVERYBODY talks about it whenever someone mentions electric cars :D :D but there is also a very real problem of over-production of solar energy during the day now. In fact a lot of solar farms around the world are being turned off at midday because of excess production. That excess energy could replenish a lot of car batteries. Also, COAL plants usually operate at maximum efficiency when at high load, during dead hours the cars could contribute to increase the load. China is in fact developping a kind of smart grid-connected charger that will allow the grid to tap into the cars' batteries during peak hours and then charge them again during off-peak. I agree a lot needs to be done. But its still a good solution. And PLEASE dont mention fusion which has been 'two-years-away' for the past fifty years :D at least this one is here and its now.
