A Comparative Study and Investigation of Different Rotor Designs of Induction Motor for Urban Use Electric Vehicle
Because of environmental effects of fossil fuels and shortage problems of reserves, the researchers focus more and
more to electric vehicles (EV). But it has a range problem because of insufficient battery technology. It looks that EV’s are
more useful for urban usage for today. In this paper, we designed an induction motor(IM) for urban usage Electric Vehicle
(EV)by considering urban traffic limitations such as unsteady velocity and stop-go options. We optimized take-off torque
recover urban traffic limitations by comparing single cage and double cage rotor design performances.
