Abstract

Despite significant international efforts to raise awareness, promote lifestyle change, and other solutions to fission the problem away; climate change is remained as one of the most significant threats facing the world today.
Electrical vehicle is one approach to achieve the efficient use of fossil fuel or completely find an alternative fuel like fuel cell. Electrical vehicle are propelled by electrical machine and controlled by drive. The proposed research has aim to develop a permanent magnet synchronous (PMSM) drive system which is suitable for electrical vehicle using multilevel inverter (MLI). Many students have been trained under this project on how to design MLI inverter and its control system climate change remained as one of the most significant threats facing the world today.Electrical vehicle is one approach to achieve the efficient use of fossil fuel or completely find an alternative fuel like fuel cell. Electrical vehicle are propelled by electrical machine and controlled by drive.
