Detailed explanation of the brake principle of electric vehicles
- Aug 22, 2018 -

Electric vehicle brakes are mainly used for deceleration, and can also stop the vehicle while reducing the speed. So what is the principle of electric car braking?

The working principle of electric vehicle brakes mainly comes from friction. Using the friction between brake pads and brake discs (drums) and tires and the ground, the kinetic energy of the vehicle is converted into heat after friction, and the car is stopped.

A good and efficient brake system must provide stable, adequate, controllable braking force, and good hydraulic transmission and heat dissipation to ensure that the driver's force from the brake pedal can be effectively and efficiently transmitted to the master cylinder. And each sub-pump, and to avoid hydraulic failure and brake degeneration caused by high heat. The brake system on the car is divided into two categories: disc and drum. However, in addition to the cost advantage, the drum brake is far less efficient than the disc brake, so the brake system will only be based on the disc brake.

In the daily use of electric vehicles, first of all, reasonable operations must be carried out to make the brake system more effective.
