In the last decades, hybrid and electric vehicle powertrains have emerged in the automotive market. They have proved to be among the most viable alternatives for the reduction of emissions and fossil fuel usage in transportation. Since then, the vehicle electrification scenario has initiated a boost in the development of many cutting-edge solutions, such as switched reluctance (SR) electric motors, which appear as a great technology for automotive electrification as they are free from rare earth metals and a very cost-effective solution. This presentation discusses the evolution of an SR motor control algorithm enabled by using Model-Based Design with MATLAB® and Simulink® for a platform based on Zynq-7000 SoC.
