This project has the aim of creating a conceptual design of the electric system of an all-terrain vehicle (ATV). The first step has been studying the current market situation and all the technologies used in an ATV. After that, all the possible applications of an ATV have been searched and classified by sectors. Once this information has been gathered, the product has been determined for a specific market and for a very concrete application, and the designing process has begun. First of all, the specifications that the product will need have been defined, fixing the limits and the goals. The application to which the product is destined to has been highly taken into account in this process. The project has proceeded with the electric design. Firstly, with a general output of the system, and later deepening into each detail and component of the product. Also in this chapter, a specific model of each pieces has been selected. At the same time that the components have been selected, a dynamic simulator of the ATV has been used to verify that each of them assures the meeting of the specifications. Also, the simulator has been used to adjust the parameters of the components. Once the selection of the components has been finished, an approximate 3D design of each component has been created so the possibility of assembly with the mechanic part of the ATV could be checked. Finally, a study of the applicable legislation has been carried out, a budget has been defined and the conclusions of the project have been extracted.
