There is an increased demand for electric bike in the market. This is due to the fact that the user is looking for increased comfort and also reduced price in present day scenario. So E-bikes are an extremely efficient and cost effective method to cater to all the needs of the consumer. Instead of investing money in a brand new model of bicycle, it is also effective to covert an existing model of pedal powered bicycle into an electrically powered one, which would be just as efficient as the new design, hence catering to all the needs and requirements of the consumer. The control of the E-bike is done by using chopper control and in turn by using an ATMEGA-32 microcontroller to regulate the analog input from the throttle. The motor drive used for the model would be a DC series motor. Hence the model of the electric bike would be simple in design as well as efficient.
