E.3.6 Accelerator Actuation - General
All systems that transmit the drivers control of the speed of the vehicle, commonly called
Accelerator systems, must be designed and constructed as fail safe systems, so that the
failure of any one component, be it mechanical will not result in an uncontrolled acceleration of
the vehicle. This applies to both IC engines and to electric motors that power the vehicle.
The Accelerator control must be actuated mechanically i.e. electrical Accelerator control (ETC)
or drive-by-wire is acceptable.
Any Accelerator pedal must have a positive pedal stop incorporated on the Accelerator pedal to
prevent over stressing the Accelerator cable or any part of the actuation system.
E.3.7Mechanical Accelerator Actuation:
If mechanical Accelerator actuation is used, the Accelerator cable or rod must have
smooth operation, and must not have the possibility of binding or sticking.
The Accelerator actuation system must use at least two (2) return springs located at the
throttle body, so that the failure of any component of the Accelerator system will not
prevent the Accelerator returning to the closed position.
Any Accelerator pedal cable must be protected from being bent or kinked by the drivers
foot when it is operated by the driver or when the driver enters or exits the vehicle.
If the Accelerator system contains any mechanism that could become jammed, for
example a gear mechanism, then this must be covered to prevent ingress of any debris.
The use of a push-pull type Accelerator cable with an Accelerator pedal that is capable of
forcing the Accelerator closed (e.g. toe strap) is recommended.
E.3.8 Muffler and Exhaust:

We at ISIE strongly believe in green future. The teams must keep in mind that they
should select the appropriate exhaust system. In order to reduce the noise, efficient
exhaust silencers are compulsory.
The exhaust must be routed so that the driver is not subjected to fumes at any speed
considering the draft of the car.
Page | 38

Any exhaust components (headers, mufflers, etc.) that protrude from the side of the body
in front of the main roll hoop must be shielded to prevent contact by persons approaching
the car or a driver exiting the car.
The application of fibrous material, e.g. header wrap, to the outside of an exhaust
manifold or exhaust system is prohibited.

E.3.9Fuel and Position of Fuel Tank

To avoid any alterations in the properties of the fuel at the time of race, ISIE will
provide the fuel to all the teams at the standard market rate.
The capacity of the fuel tank must not exceed 7 liters in volume.
The placement of fuel tank should be such that it maintains a proper distance from the
engine and also it should not be above the battery.
It must be securely fixed to the chassis and be designed in such a way that neither it
nor the fuel pipes (which must be flexible) present any danger of leakage during the
event.
A quick attachment to the chassis is strongly recommended. It is mandatory to place
it between the main tubes of the chassis-frame.

E.3.10 Fuel Tanks

The fuel tank is defined as that part of the fuel containment device that is in contact with
the fuel. It may be made of a rigid material or a flexible material.
Fuel tanks made of a rigid material cannot be used to carry structural loads, e.g. from roll
hoops, suspension, engine or gearbox mounts, and must be securely attached to the
vehicle structure with mountings that allow some flexibility such that chassis flex cannot
unintentionally load the fuel tank.
Any fuel tank that is made from a flexible material, for example a bladder fuel cell or a
bag tank must be enclosed within a rigid fuel tank container which is securely attached to
the vehicle structure.
Fuel tank containers (containing a bladder fuel cell or bag tank) may be load carrying.
Any size fuel tank may be used.
The fuel system must have a drain fitting for emptying the fuel tank. The drain must be at
the lowest point of the tank and be accessible from under the vehicle. It must not protrude
below the lowest plane of the vehicle frame, and must have provision for safety wiring.

E.3.11 Fuel System Location Requirements

All parts of the fuel storage and supply system must lie within the surface defined by the
top of the roll bar and the outside edge of the four tires.
All fuel tanks must be shielded from side or rear impact collisions.
A firewall must be incorporated to separate the fuel tank from the driver.

Page | 39

All fuel tanks must be vertical (with a horizontal filler cap) or angled at no more than forty-five
degrees (45) from the vertical.
Any sight tube must not run below the top surface of the fuel tank.
E.3.13 Tank Filling Requirement

The tank must be capable of being filled to capacity without manipulating the tank or
vehicle in any way (shaking vehicle, etc.).
The fuel system must be designed such that the spillage during refueling cannot
contact the driver position, exhaust system, hot engine parts, or the ignition system.
Belly pans must be vented to prevent accumulation of fuel.

E.3.14 Venting Systems

The fuel tank and carburetor venting systems must be designed such that fuel cannot
spill during hard cornering or acceleration.
All fuel vent lines must be equipped with a check valve to prevent fuel leakage when
the tank is inverted. All fuel vent lines must exit outside the bodywork.

E.3.15 Catch Cans


Separate catch cans must be employed to retain fluids from any vents for the coolant system or
lubrication system. Each catch-can must have a minimum volume of ten (10) percent of the fluid
being contained or 0.9 liter whichever is greater.
Catch cans must be capable of containing boiling water without deformation, and be located

E.5 GENERAL RULES FOR HYBRID AND ELECTRIC VEHICLE:
E.5.1 Basic Definitions
a) The Accumulator is defined as all the batteries or capacitors that store the electrical
energy to be used by the tractive system.
b) Accumulator Segments are sub-divisions of the accumulator and must respect either a
maximum voltage or energy limit. Splitting the accumulator into segments is intended to
reduce the risks associated with working on the accumulator.
c) The Tractive System of the car is defined as every part that is electrically connected to
the motor(s) and accumulators.
d) The Grounded Low Voltage (GLV) system of the car is defined as every electrical part
that is not part of the tractive system.
The GLV system must be grounded to the chassis.
The tractive and GLV system must be galvanically isolated from one another.
Note: The border between tractive and GLV systems is the galvanic isolation between
both systems. Therefore, some components, such as the motor controller, may be part of
both systems.
The tractive system must be completely electrically isolated from the chassis and any
other conductive parts of the car.
The tractive system motor(s) must be connected to the accumulator through a motor
controller.
Bypassing the control system and connecting the tractive system accumulator directly to
the motor(s) is prohibited.
The GLV system must be powered up before it is possible to activate the tractive system.
Furthermore, a failure causing the GLV system to shut down must immediately
deactivate the tractive system as well.
E.5.2 Transmission
The transmission to be used in the Vehicles must be of rear wheel drive only. The teams are free
to use any sort of designs i.e. the use of differential, through the axle, the wheel mounting hub or
by any other means.
E.5.3 Throttle Paddle
Only foot operated paddle is allowed, Hand operated lever will not allowed. There should be a
positive lock provided with the throttle paddle.
E.5.4 Normal Low Voltage and Tractive System Voltage
The maximum permitted operating voltage for is 48 VDC. The maximum operating voltage is
defined as the maximum measured accumulator voltage during normal charging conditions.
The GLV system must be grounded to the chassis.
Page | 41

The border between tractive and NLV systems should be insulated between both systems.
Therefore, some components, such as the motor controller, may be part of both systems.
The tractive system must be completely isolated from the chassis and any other
conductive parts of the Vehicle.
The tractive system motor(s) must be connected to the accumulator through a motor
controller. Bypassing the control system and connecting the tractive system accumulator
directly to the motor(s) is prohibited.
The NLV system must be powered up before it is possible to activate the tractive system
Furthermore, a failure causing the NLV system to shut down must immediately
deactivate the tractive system as well.

E.5.5 Allowed Tractive System Accumulators

The following accumulators are acceptable; batteries (e.g. lithium-ion batteries, lead acid
batteries and many other rechargeable battery chemistries) and capacitors.
All batteries or capacitors which store the tractive system energy must be enclosed in (an)
accumulator container(s).
If spare accumulators are to be used then they all must be of the same size, weight and
type as those that are replaced. Spare accumulator packs must be presented at Electrical
Technical Inspection.

E.5.6 Weight of the vehicle


The weight of the vehicle should not be exceed more than 250 kg (Excluding the weight of the
driver).
E.6 General Requirements& Safety measures:
E.6.1 NLV Batteries

G.2 DYNAMIC EVENTS
G.2.1 Brake Test- All the electric and hybrid Vehicles have to pass the brake test to participate
in any of the dynamic events. The Vehicle must stop in a straight line after the brake is applied
on the Vehicle. Every vehicle will get maximum 3 attempt.
G.2.1ABrake Test does not have any points, but it is mandatory for the teams to qualify this
round to participate in the dynamic round.
G.2.1B Speed of the vehicle: During this test teams must maintained at least 25Km/hour speed.
If team fail to maintained this much speed, there attempt will be not taken in consideration.
G.2.1C Procedure: Drivers have to run their vehicle in straight way for 50 Meters. There will be
a brake line whenever vehicle touching that line driver required to apply brake at the same. All
four wheel must be lock in a straight line.
G.2.1D Did Not Attempt (DNA): If the Vehicle did not attempt or if it does not complete the
event, then those teams would receive DNA. And after all attempt team will not allow to
participate in any dynamic event.
G.2.2 Acceleration Test:
The acceleration event evaluates the Vehicles acceleration in a straight line on flat pavement for
hybrid as well as electric vehicle.
G.2.2A Procedure: The cars will accelerate from a standing start over a distance of 50 m on a
flat surface. The foremost part of the Vehicle will be staged at exactly behind the starting line.
The time taken to accelerate would be measured.
There will be separate rounds for the acceleration for hybrid and electric Vehicles.
Page | 49

Best Acceleration Award will be separate for electric and hybrid vehicle.
Maximum 2 attempt will be given to each team.

G.2.2B Scoring: The acceleration score is based upon the corrected elapsed time. Elapsed time
will be measured from the time the car crosses the starting line until it crosses the finish line.
Scoring formula: Scoring formula: 100 [(T longest T yours)/ (T longest- T shortest)]
G.2.2C Penalty: Cones Down or Out: A two (2) second penalty will be added for each DOO
(including entry and exit gate cones) that occurred on that particular run to give the corrected
elapsed time.
G.2.2D Did Not Attempt (DNA): If the Vehicle did not attempt or if it does not complete the
event, then those teams would receive DNA.
G.2.3 Skid Pad Test:
The objective of the skid-pad event is to measure the Vehicles cornering ability on a flat surface
while making a constant-radius turn.
There will be separate rounds for the skid Pad for hybrid and electric Vehicles.
Best skid pad Award will be given both categories of vehicle e.g. Electric & Hybrid.
Maximum 2 attempt will be given to each team. Best attempt will be consider for the
scoring of this round.
Each team may make two (2) attempts but with different drivers. Scoring will be based
on the better of the two attempts.
2nd driver has the option to take a second run immediately after the first.
G.2.3A Skid Pad Layout- There will be two (2) pairs of concentric circles in a figure of eight
pattern. The centers of these circles will be 17.5m apart. The inner circles will be 14.5 m in
diameter, and the outer circles will be 20.5m in diameter. The driving path will be the 2.5 m (8.2
feet) path between the inner and outer circles. The Vehicles will enter and exit through gates on a
3 m wide path that is tangential to the circles where they meet. The line between the centers of
the circles defines the start/stop line. A lap is defined as travelling around one of the circles from
the start/stop line and returning to the start/stop line.

Page | 50

G.2.3B Procedureo The track is laid as shown above and the Vehicles will enter the track perpendicular
to the figure eight. They must take one full lap on the right circle to establish the turn
and the Vehicle must move on to the left circle to complete the lap. This completes
one lap and will be timed. Immediately upon finishing the circle the lap will be
completed, and the Vehicle will exit the track. The Vehicle will exit at the
intersection moving in the same direction as entered.
G.2.3C Penalties Cones Down or Out- A penalty of 1second will be added to the time for every cone that
is knocked down or out (including gate cones).
Unfinished- Vehicles that has gone out of the track will continue as long as they have not
gone off course will be classified as Unfinished.
Incorrect Laps- Vehicles that do not follow procedure, i.e. run an incorrect number of
laps or run the Laps in the wrong sequence will also be classified as unfinished.
G.2.3D Scoring: Skid Pad score = 100 [(T longest T yours)/ (T longest- T shortest)]

o Once a Vehicle has begun the endurance event, recharging accumulators from an
outside source is not permitted.

Page | 53

G.2.5D Fueling: Before the beginning of the endurance event, for the hybrid Vehicle fuel tank
and any downstream fuel accumulators, e.g., carburetor float bowls, will be drained. The
allocated amount of fuel will then be added to the tank by the organizers and the filler will be
sealed.
G.2.5E Charging: The electrical vehicles will be allowed to charge completely prior to the start
of the event, but will not be allowed to charge in any case once it enters the track.
G.2.5F Endurance Penalties: The penalties in effect during the endurance event are listed
below:

Cone down or out: Five (5) seconds per cone. This includes cones before the start line
and after the finish line.
Off Course (OC): For an off Course, the driver must re-enter the track at or prior to the
missed gate or a twenty (20) second penalty will be assessed.
Missed Slalom: Missing one or more gates of a given slalom will incur a twenty (20)
second penalty.
Vehicle to Vehicle Contact: DISQUALIFIED
Running Out of Order: 2 Minutes

G.2.5G Endurance Vehicle Restarting:


The Vehicle must be capable of restarting without external assistance at all times once the
Vehicle has begun the event.
If a Vehicle stops out on the track, two min. will be given and if team is not able to make
the Vehicle run in specified time, than some points will be deducted.
At the end of Driver Change, the Vehicle will be allowed two (2) minutes to reenergize
the electrical system and restart the Vehicle drive system.
G.2.5H Breakdowns & Stalls:
If a Vehicle breaks down it will be removed from the course and will not be allowed to
re-enter the course.
If a Vehicle spins, stalls, ingests a cone, etc., it will be allowed to restart and re-enter the
course where it went off, but no work may be performed on the Vehicle.
If a Vehicle stops on track and cannot be restarted without external assistance, the track
workers will push the Vehicle clear of the track. At the discretion of event officials, two
(2) team members may retrieve the Vehicle under direction of the track workers.
G.2.5I Endurance Driver Change Procedure:
There must be a maximum of two (2) drivers for the endurance event; one driver may not
drive in three consecutive segments.
Each driver will drive half of the track (5 km), and then be signaled into the driver change
area.
Only three (3) team members, including the driver or drivers, will be allowed in the
driver change area. Only the tools necessary to adjust the Vehicle to accommodate the
Page | 54

different drivers will be carried into this area (no tool chests etc.). Extra people entering
the driver change area will result in a twenty (20) point penalty to the final endurance
score for each extra person entering the area.
The Vehicle must come to a complete stop, the IC engine turned off and the TSV shut
down. These systems must remain shutting down until the new driver is in place.
The driver will exit the Vehicle and any necessary adjustments will be made to the
Vehicle to fit the new driver. The new driver will then be secured in the Vehicle.
Three (3) minutes are allowed for the team to change drivers. The time starts when the
Vehicle comes to a halt in the driver change area and stops when the correct adjustment
of the driver restraints and safety equipment has been verified by the driver change area
official. Any time taken over the allowed time will incur a penalty.
Once the new driver is in place and an official has verified the correct adjustment of the
driver restraints and safety equipment, a maximum of two (2) minutes are allowed to reenergize the electrical system, restart the Vehicle drive system and begin moving out of
the driver change area.

G.2.5J Reckless or Aggressive Driving


Any reckless or aggressive driving behavior (such as forcing another Vehicle off
the track, refusal to allow passing, or close driving that would cause the likelihood
of Vehicle contact) will result in a black flag for that driver.
When a driver receives a black flag signal, he/she must proceed to the penalty box
to listen to a reprimand for his/her driving behavior.
The amount of time spent in the penalty box will vary from one (1) to four (4)
minutes depending upon the severity of the offense.
If it is impossible to impose a penalty by a stop under a black flag, e.g. not enough
laps left, the event officials may add an appropriate time penalty to the teams
elapsed time.
G.2.5K Inexperienced Driver:
The Chief Marshall/Director of Operations may disqualify a driver if the driver is too slow, too
aggressive, or driving in a manner that, in the sole opinion of the event officials, demonstrates an
inability to properly control their Vehicle. This will result in a Did Not Finish (DNF) for the
event.
G.2.5L Fuel economy test:
The fuel economy test is based on the average liters per kilometer fuel economy obtained
during the endurance heat.

The Vehicles fuel economy will be measured in conjunction with the endurance event.
The fuel economy under racing conditions is important in most forms of racing and also
shows how well the Vehicle has been tuned for the Challenge.

This is an event where optimization is needed because the fuel economy score and
endurance score will be calculated from the same heat. No refueling will be allowed
during an endurance.

The HVC event being organized by ISIE is a challenge of design engineering and
manufacturing competition that requires performance demonstration of Hybrid and
Electric Vehicles and is NOT a race. Engineering ethics will apply.
It is ISIE- HVC RULES & REGULATION 2017 www.imperialsociety.in recognized that
lots of hard work has been put in by the teams for an entry into HVC Event.
It is also recognized that this event is an innovation enhancement experience but that it
often times becomes confused with a high stakes race. In the heat of competition,
emotions peak and disputes arise.
The officials of ISIE are trained volunteers and maximum effort will be put in to settle
the disputes an equitable, professional manner.

H.12 General Authority


ISIE and the competition organizing bodies reserves the right to revise the schedule of any
competition and/or interpret or modify the competition rules at any time and in any manner that
is , in their sole judgment, required for the efficient operation of the event or the HVC series as
awhole.
