Abstract: This paper focuses on increasing the operating efficiency of the inverter drive induction motor for electric vehicles. The vehicle speed control is achieved by changing the frequency from 5 Hz to 100 Hz. In this work, characteristics of the inverter control induction motor drive are established. The mathematical analysis is developed by the computer programs. The computed characteristic curves are obtained. Due to the difficulty of obtaining an actual electric vehicle in the lap, a fan load equivalent to the electric vehicle is used. The load characteristics are measured at different applied voltages for energy saving.
Keywords: three phase induction motor; control induction motor; traction application; electric vehicle; inverter; power electronics; motor drive; Matlab; simulation; experimental induction motor.
