Advanced Energy Vehicle (AEV) Lab 08: AEV Design Analysis Tool AEV Project Objective (Problem Definition) INITIAL CONCEPTS (Brainstorming) EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH (Programming) (System Analysis) PT 1 PT 2 PT 3 PT 4 FINAL DESIGN Present AEV Design Learning Objectives Become familiar with the MATLAB based Design Analysis Tool Be able to upload wind tunnel/Arduino data into the Design Analysis Tool Conduct performance analysis of the AEV operation with the tool Be able to export plots for documentation and support Design Analysis Tool The purpose of creating and utilizing a design analysis tool is to increase productivity in the performance test phase of the project. The project is now in the design cycle consisting of meeting four performance tests throughout the project. Coded in-house in MATLAB to work with Arduino and Excel.

Lab # A – Starts the Lab week with Test Readiness Review Lab # B – Continue working on completing the task(s) Lab # C – Ends the Lab week with Lab Memo due the following week Documents for the Rest of the Semester Test Readiness Review (TRR) – Short length executive summary that summarizes the lab’s objective and what each student is responsible for doing. Performance Test (PT) Executive Summary – Summarizes the results and findings from the week’s lab. Preliminary Design Review (PDR) – Midterm report that demonstrates that the preliminary design meets all system requirements with acceptable risk and is within cost and schedule constraints while establishing the basis for the detailed design. Critical Design Review (CDR) – Final report that demonstrates that the final design met all system requirements with acceptable risk and was within cost and schedule constraints. Performance Test 1 – Test Readiness Review Requirements A small document reviewing what the team is going to accomplish this week and who is going to accomplish what tasks. Performance Test 1: Create two different AEV vehicles and determine which system is a better, energy efficient vehicle. Due: Beginning of PT1 – Lab 9A! Questions?
