Mahindra Ecole Centrale(MEC), Hyderabad has set up an Electric Vehicle Technology(EVT) laboratory in its campus. This laboratory will emphasise the scientific and technological aspect of green and clean mobility. All the students across various stream of engineering at MEC will work on development, testing, and design of electric vehicles.
Speaking about the importance of initiatives that focus on clean and green mobility, Dr. Yajulu Medury, Director, Mahindra Ecole Centrale said, “Clean Mobility has been given high priority by the Government of India and we at MEC are also committed to working towards finding solutions for issues of national interest. Electric Vehicles are the future and so are fast charging Li-Ion batteries (this year’s Nobel Prize winning topic in Chemistry) as well as energy sources to power these vehicles. MEC’s EVT lab will work on these and more and will research on all aspects that will propel this technology sector.”
The EVT lab will primarily focus on elements of electrical, mechanical, and embedded systems. In addition to this, laboratory will focus on testing facility to analyse and optimize the battery characteristics under different running conditions, development of robust battery management system, methods of recycling and reuse of spent battery, thermal management systems for batteries, new energy source technology for EVs, and new materials to serve as catalyst of Li-ion battery.
