On March 12, 2020, PUI SKO ITS received a visit from SMA Negeri 3 Palembang, which consisted of 48 student participants who were accompanied by 8 teachers. The visit started at 09.30 until 12.00 WIB and was held inside the MOLINA building. The study visit from the school was intended to expand the knowledge of SMAN 3 Palembang students about electric vehicles.
In the following picture, students were being explained about one of the electric vehicles produced from PUI SKO ITS research, the EZZY electric car. This electric car is a product of the national electric car research conducted by PUI SKO ITS. Currently the EZZY car already has a second generation which is a refinement of the first generation EZZY which came out in 2013. The second generation Ezzy is a Sport Hatchback car that has a maximum mileage of 180 Km using a LiFePO4 battery and is driven by a BLDC electric motor that can output a maximum power of 60 kW with a maximum torque of 200 Nm.
Next, students were shown the GESITS electric scooter, which is a product of research from PUI SKO ITS which has already entered the commercial sales phase. The Gesits electric scooter uses electric power with a 5 KW Motor power, and now its production is held by PT WIMA. Presently, PUI SKO ITS is also working on various GESITS development in collaboration with PT WIMA, such as the development of a regenerative brake, which is intended to save motor energy which is normally wasted during braking, increasing power efficiency, and the development of an electrical energy management system for navigation purposes during distant travels.
The next facility the students visited was the CNC machining facility. Here students were shown two Haas CNC machines, type VF3 for milling, drilling, and tapering and type ST10 for lathe. From these two machines, various products can be manufactured, for example custom designs for electric motor spare parts such as casings, rotors, and fins, as well as molds for the casting process of glass products.
