The power systems team deals with any high voltage - everything from the battery pack to the inverter which controls our motors. We are developing the world’s first 100kW quad inverter and a custom battery management system.
Team Members: Cole Burek, Ryan Gao, Jake Boxleitner, Lee Waddell, Hunter Alexander
The accumulator team is responsible for designing and building the high voltage battery which will power the electric car. This battery is made up from many small cells which must be packaged into a form which minimizes weight, maximizes total capacity, and optimizes space in the vehicle.
Team Members: Kyle Anderson, Vito Immordino, Sanket Singal, Brandon Wang, Antonio Rubio, Atilla Veyssal, Joseph Ladin, Anna Scheibengrab
The controls team is responsible for creating and implementing algorithms which make use of data provided by sensors to make the car run faster and more efficiently.
Team Members: Evan Wildenberg, Evan Williams, Siddhartha Edara, Jack Zhou, Mostafa Hassan
The aerodynamics team for the electric car collaborates closely with their combustion equivalents. They are responsible for manufacturing any parts of the car that are carbon fiber, mainly the monocoque, bodywork, and the wings.
Team Members: Matt Hanson, Amber Westlund, Alex Miller, Neil Outarsingh
The chassis team works to take advantage to the good work done by the other sub-teams and turn it into lap times. They are responsible for the hybrid monocoque frame, steering, suspension, Brakes and vehicle dynamics to make Wisconsin Racing vehicles some of the best handling in the world.
Team Members: Vedant Agrawal, Connor Keleher, Kissak Saraijan, Brett Prussack
Electrical Systems Team
The Electrical Systems Team is responsible for all low voltage components on the car. Connected by a wiring harness, they are the ECU, Steering Wheel, Data Logger, Sensors, Low Voltage Battery and distribution, and Wireless Modem. We design custom PCBs using Altium and develop software mostly in C. Our custom circuits include a power distribution panel and embedded electronics in the steering wheel.
Team Members: Danny Christensen, Wesley Cirves, Alex Halloran, Zheyu He, Jacob Hoeg, Quinn Sabin, Marisa Tisler, Mostafa Wail Hassan, Evan Wildenberg, Evan Williams
The Drivetrain Team is responsible for taking all of the energy of the accumulator in the form of AC current from the inverters and convert it into torque at each one of the tires. We design custom planetary gear boxes, electric motors, motor splines, and work in collaboration with the chassis team on housing everything including the upright and brakes inside of each tire. Our team is also responsible for cooling design of the vehicle, keeping the motors and inverters working at optimal states.
Team Members: Jake Boxleitner, Tristan Hinoul, Max Liben, Alex Pletta, Ryan Porter, Finn Roberts, Will Sixel, Nick Zoellick
