We are trying to build a small Solar car
the car's dimensions (Length :100CM, Width 60CM)
the car mass is not going to exceed 2KG
The car speed can be up to 2.5 or 3 m/s
We`ll be using PV modules that each can provide up to 6Volts & 250mA
Those modules have dimensions 65mm x 165mm X 3.0mm along the car surface area
We can connect all those modules in paralle or every 2 in series to obtain a 12V
Wheels will be of a diameter 12CM or 15CM depending on the motor
yet we are confused, what type of motors should we use
A brush-less DC motor ? or a normal brushed motor
i think i`m misunderstanding Brush-less motors as i think they do need huge amount of current to work and in our case we are working with a current limited source [1~1.5Amps] (The PV cells) is this correct ?
Should we go for a brush-less or a brushed motor?
we bought the EMAX BL2212 1400 KV Brushless motor we think we can use gears to obtain more torque and decrease this RPM will this method work?
