Abstract—the main objective of this paper is to analyze the
design of existing charging systems in electric cars and the
incorporation of a newly developed alternative system for
charging the batteries. Currently, the major problem faced
by electric cars is the limited travel range and the extent of
time required in fully charging the batteries. In this proposal,
the alternative charging system can be an in-built system of
the electric car for charging the batteries at the time of
running. This system can act as a dual system of which the
batteries can be charged using an AC power supply source
while the car is at rest mode and can be charged by using the
power supply reclaimed from the motors fixed on the shaft of
the car.

solving the aforementioned problems, significant changes
can be made in the practical utilization of electric cars.
In theory the AC alternator can be used to convert
mechanical energy to electrical energy [4]. Using this
theory as the main concept of this paper is to generate
electric energy by using the alternative system. Thus the
power generated can be used for charging the batteries
while the car is in motion.

Keywords—electric cars, battery charging, limited charge,

Electric drives are currently used for electric cars
by draining the power from the batteries. Before the advent
of the internal combustion engine, the gasoline engine
contributed an effective cost towards the initial...
