PIP on Electric Tractor Design

Description

The word tractor is related to words like traction & tractive from Latin word tractus which means drawing(pulling): a tractor is essentially a machine designed to pull things along, usually very slowly and surely.

A tractor is an engineering vehicle specially designed to deliver a high tractive effort or torque at slow speeds, for the purposes of hauling a trailer or machinery used in agriculture. Most commonly, the term is used to describe a farm vehicle that provides the power and traction to mechanize agricultural tasks, especially tillage.

As of now, tractors run on liquid fuels which consume lot of fuel and it also affects the pollution so also, we are running out of fossil fuels. Keeping in mind the shift towards using electricity as the source of energy, Sonalika recently launched an Electric Tractor. The eco-friendly tractor has a top speed of 24.93kph and a battery backup of 8 hours while operating with 2-tonne trolley.

Considering the needs of the industries and the shift towards Electric Vehicles, ISIE INDIA is organizing a Proficiency Improvement Program (PIP) on Electric Tractor Designing. The program is exclusively designed by Industrial experts having vast experience is EV domain. The program will be covering the design concepts of chassis, motor, battery, steering geometry. This is one of its kind of program launched by ISIE INDIA which is focusing on Industry oriented Skill Development.

With a rapid shift from IC to Electric power as the source to be used to run vehicles, Electric Tractor is going to be a big thing in coming years. Considering the needs and requirements, this PIP is focusing on need of the hour which is Electric Vehicle. ISIE INDIA is providing the best platform to gain some knowledge in EV domain. So, get enrolled and be the best from the rest.
