Using a high-voltage electric current, there is a risk of electrocution in an electric car.
It’s just that the risk of electrocution in electric cars can be avoided, such as when a short circuit or damage occurs.
In electric cars there is a kind of circuit breaker safety system. This safety will cut off the total high-voltage electric current of the electric car.
In case of induction or short circuit, there is an overvoltage in one line of electric current.
Excess that has the potential to trigger an electric current will be detected by the circuit breaker.
After the circuit breaker disconnects the electric current, the electricity is completely turned off and there is no electrocution.
Apart from the safety system, this circuit breaker can also be used manually.
Like when doing regular service maintenance of electric cars. The orange wires in electric cars are high-voltage electric current lines and are connected to electric motors and inverters.
In checking the electric motor and inverter, the technician will be safe from the risk of electrocution when in contact with this orange wire.
