The popularization of electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) has gained momentum in recent times due to the increasing environment concerns and drive for energy conservation. Design of compact, light weight, efficient and high speed motors is crucial for improving the performance of the propulsion system of the EV and HEV. My research is focused on the design and development of high performance Switched Reluctance Motors (SRM) for EV / HEV specific application. It has been recognized that designing the next generation of hybrid systems will heavily rely on the development of these high performance motors.We are currently building a motor prototype based on a custom motor design that could enhance the performance of the HEV/EV.
