Energy conservation, environmental conservation and sustainable development are the need of the hour and in this regard the development of an electric vehicle has become topmost priority. There is a growing concern about the safety of EVs, which have transformed the future of the automobile industry. With this rapid growth there is a increasing requirement for monitoring and development of safety circuits for battery pack, drivetrain and during emergencies. In this paper we have focused on developing a safety system for a formula electric car keeping design simplicity in mind. All the systems and circuits proposed in this paper are in accordance with the FSAE rules. As part of this project an analysis methodology for analysis of safety systems has been developed and the potential impacts of these circuits have been studied. © 2016 IEEE.
