Electrified vehicles have proven to be potential candidates in the future for disrupting the automotive industry which is dominated by conventional gasoline vehicles. Electric vehicle (EV) technology has evolved rapidly over the last decade with new designs of EV drivetrain systems and components but no specific design has been able to serve as a solution that is affordable, reliable and performance-wise similar to existing gasoline vehicle equivalent. Extended driving range and overall cost of the vehicle still remain major bottlenecks. Understanding the state-of-the-art technologies and challenges in existing electric vehicle powertrain and charging systems, with major focus on permanent magnet synchronous machines & drives, this dissertation presents the following:
