Dismantling the Land Speed Record: Data Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation for the Venturi Buckeye Bullet

R.J. Kromer, Ohio State University

Over the last decade, the Buckeye Bullet Program at The Ohio State University has set numerous international and national land speed records for electric vehicles, using both battery and fuel cell power systems. Designing and controlling these systems for a land speed racing application provides unique challenges that are not encountered in normal operation. This session presents an overview of the challenges and solutions for data analysis, modeling, and simulation of the 2009 and 2010 vehicles. Case studies of particularly interesting problems are covered, with a focus on the new 2013 400 mph vehicle.
