Formula Racing at UC Davis wishes you a happy new year. Here are some of the snapshots from Fall quarter. 

Team Progress

After being informed by the College of Engineering on the emergency cease of high voltage development, the team quickly changed the FE9 design back to low voltage. As each subteam presented and received feedback at the Final Design Review in November, the team is preparing for the production season. The team has recently moved into the Western Center for Agricultural Equipment as one of the production sites and placed part orders to get ready for some hands-on machining following the campus safety guidelines.

Power Electronics Interface, also known as PEI, is used to connect boards in the accumulator container to the rest of Ground Low Voltage. It also hosts latching circuits for the Insulation Monitoring Device (IMD) and Battery Management System (BMS) and controls the Tractive System Active Light's (TSAL) state.
