—This paper proposes a strategy to minimize the losses of an induction motor propelling and Electric Vehicle (EV). The proposed control strategy, based on a Direct Flux and Torque Control (DTC) scheme, utilizes the stator flux as control variable and the flux level is selected in accordance with torque demand of the EV to achieve the efficiency optimized(More)
—This paper presents system modeling, analysis, and simulation of an electric vehicle (EV) with two independent rear wheel drives. The traction control system is designed to guarantee the EV dynamics and stability when there are no differential gears. Using two in-wheel electric motors makes it possible to have torque and speed control in each wheel. This(More)
In this paper, a new method for the detection of electrical arc faults is presented It is possible, by using a digital signal processor programmed with Matlab/Simulink, to create a system able to detect the presence of unwanted frequencies in the distribution network. Those frequencies are often generated by an electrical arc in the network.
The article aims to simulate a multipowered onboard drive train system. The proposed system is capable of managing and constantly adapting several power sources of different characteristic to a varying current load. All the power sources integrated in the onboard drive train are renewable energy. They include a battery bank, supercapacitors and a fuel cell.(More)
