Abstract: The shortage of energy and environmental pollution are considered as relevant problems due to the high amount of automotive vehicles with internal combustion engines. Electric vehicles (EV) are one of the solutions to localize the energy source and best choice for saving energy and provide zero emission vehicles. The key component of the Electric vehicles is the electric motor and, therefore, its choice is important. Many types of electric motors have been analyzed during last decades and evaluated for EVs. Switched reluctance motors (SRM) have a number of advantages in contrast with other electric motors due to their simple construction, flexibility of control, high efficiency, lower cost and robustness to run under failure conditions. The SRM rotor does not have any windings or permanent magnets, being suitable for very high speed drive application. The switched reluctance motors drives (SRDs) necessitate more advanced control technology than DC and AC motors drives. High torque ripple, acoustic noise and vibrations are the major drawbacks of the SRM. So to decrease the torque ripple and improve the electric efficiency is the main objective and can be achieved by optimization policy.
