Abstract: High speed can be achieved by choosing compact size of propulsion system in an electric vehicle (EV). The cost of the propulsion system is one of the major design considerations which fall on the type of motor and controller. The choice of pancake shape Axial Flux Permanent Magnet Brushless DC Motor (AFPM BLDC) reduces the size of the propulsion system and improves the on board space of the EV. The intermittent periodic duty class has been considered to choose the power rating of the AFPM. A new type of Zeta converter is proposed here to regulate the input side DC voltage. The dynamic performance of the EV has been compared with and without Zeta converter which will be useful for the researchers in future.

Keywords: AFPM; axial flux permanent magnet brushless DC motor; static model; Zeta converter; total harmonic distortion; electric vehicle acceleration; distance travelled.
