DESIGN AND APPLICATION OF TRACTION MOTORS FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES

The design of electric traction motors for electric vehicle applications requires intimate knowledge of the vehicle mission and performance requirements and a systems approach involving integration of the motor into the entire electrical power system. Motor characteristics are reviewed, speed control possiblities are discussed, and factors to be considered in the application and selection of traction motors are explained in detail.
