Solar Car Design Reference Material

Note: Regulations will have changed since these reference materials were created, always reference the latest regulations to verify design compliance. Older documents may show or describe designs and methods that are no longer compliant.

Solar Car Conference Resources

Many of the presentations from past IEF Solar Car Conferences are made available online. These can serve as a valuable reference for solar car design as well as project management and race logistics.

Mechanical Design Resources

Electrical Design Resources

The following links and documents are not endorsement of manufacture’s components and each team should thoroughly research and test any component before use. It is recommended teams tests all systems of components under “real world” conditions so as to verify immunity to EMI, RFI, power system noise, and temperature. Many factors can effect the performance, accuracy, and reliability of battery protection circuity.
