Abstract: The development of electric and hybrid vehicles has gained increasing attention in recent years. In this paper a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) is used as an electric drive machine. The operation of a PMSM is done through the solar photovoltaic generator (GPV). This can be done by use of boost converter and MPPT control. The speed and torque control of the PMSM drive used as the solar vehicle is controlled by proper PI controllers. A three-phase inverter using IGBT switches is simulated, in which the switching sequences are controlled by space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM). A dynamic model of a PMSM drive suitable for solar vehicles is simulated and proper closed-loop control is established by a field-oriented control method. The entire work is done in Matlab/Simulink®.
