Abstract

In this study, six kinds of the drivetrain systems of electric motor drives for EVs are discussed. Furthermore, the requirements of EVs on electric motor drives are presented. The comparative investigation on the efficiency, weight, cost, cooling, maximum speed, and fault-tolerance, safety, and reliability is carried out for switched reluctance motor, induction motor, permanent magnet blushless dc motor, and brushed dc motor drives, in order to find most appropriate electric motor drives for electric vehicle applications. The study shows that switched reluctance motor drives are the prior choice for electric vehicles.
