Power converters and its application in electric traction systems. Analysis present and future technologies
Rights accessOpen Access
the traction systems for electric vehicles have advanced considerably over recent years, with the application of different topologies of power converters for the control of various types of electric induction motors and permanent magnet. Furthermore, the evolution of power semiconductor elements of Si to SiC wideband have opened up lines of research and development in this area. The trend of manufacturer's traction systems is to reach compact systems where the power dissipation is high and the reduction of losses is minimal, for it the implementation of topologies of converters with SiC devices seems to be a good alternative of use to improve the performance of these systems; This paper describes a study and review of the different types of converter topologies proposed for the development and application in traction systems for electric vehicles. This review will identify the different works presented and analyze their problems, with the aim of seek to optimize these topologies or propose new types of topologies for implementation in traction systems.
