This motorsport thesis explores the complete electrification of an IndyCar by simulations. Initial research was conducted on stock IndyCar specifications, and concurrently, a sequential approach was developed for MATLAB-based simulations to generate comprehensive results. The study aims to integrate extensive insights gained from courses such as Vehicle Dynamics, Aerodynamics, Data Acquisition, and Electric Powertrains, alongside practical experience from racing internships. The goal is to comprehend the impact of this conversion on engineering parameters. The analysis specifically emphasizes the engineering aspects, with a particular focus on the longitudinal dynamics of the vehicle through quarter-mile simulations.
