EV Project Ideas
 

The following are a list of project ideas brought up at our monthly meetings which need a project leader to move forward. Please contact us if you are interested in leading one of these projects. Don't worry if you feel you don't know enough about a particular topic or project to lead it. Often there are lots of other members who are willing to offer help as needed, but we just need someone to lead the effort.


High rate battery tester - The desire is to build a somewhat flexible battery capacity tester that people could borrow for testing out a new technology battery or for checking out individual batteries for their conversion. The detailed requirements would still need to be defined, but generally it would need to be able to discharge a battery at both low and high (~75A) rates and be able to measure the Ahr output. Optional capability would be to also recharge the battery and have various cycling options and othe discharge options. Lee Hart has offered to serve as a mentor for this project.

Minnesota EV legislation - The goal for this project is for someone to research the existing laws in Minnesota for electric vehicles and generate a nice summary document for our web site. Would also like to talk to leaders from EAA chapters in other states to find out what (if any) special legislation exists in their states to promote electric vehicle usage. President of eRide has been lobbying in this area and may be able to help (talk to Doug Shoemaker).

Find new meeting space - The goal of this project is to find a new centrally located meeting space which we can meet at every month. This will save time and energy spent constantly coordinating the next meeting space. Ideally, the location will have free parking and ample space for checking out EVs, will be publicly available (so we don't have to cancel the meeting if the person with the keys can't show up), and will have internet access and LCD projection capability. The Flannery Construction building could work, but we are not able to get internet access and need to bring our own LCD projector.
