Drive systems in electric vehicle
The paper discusses the new technologies used in electric vehicles for traction drives. First the theory of the EV traction is presented. Next some key new technologies of the drives are discussed. Among them new electric motors solutions as well as the energy storage are compared. For the supercapacitor energy bank the efficient control methods are presented. The modern power electronics circuits and sophisticated control algorithms have also been explained. The selected EV experimental test benches of Gdansk University of Technology are depicted. Finally some representative results of the EV test are discussed.
