This paper describes the development of advanced control and modeling algorithms for the various types of motor drives considered for hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). The algorithms are given in the high-level language of MATLAB/SIMULINK. The algorithms consist of SIMULINK blocks that can be easily implemented in a real-time test environment for induction, switched reluctance, and permanent magnet synchronous machines. This eliminates the need for specialized programming in C or assembly languages providing investigators a much simpler way to study proposed control algorithms for various motor drives.
