Automotive Industry is targeting sustainable transportation in near future. Therefore hybrid and electric vehicles are going to be popular due to their sustainability, energy saving and zero emission. Electric motors play significant role in EV's. In-wheel motor technology is being used in modern electric vehicles to improve efficiency, safety and controllability of vehicle nowadays. BLDC motor have been demanding as in-wheel motor in electric vehicles because of high efficiency, desired torque versus speed characteristics, high power density and low maintenance cost. In this paper BLDC motor with ideal back-EMF is modeled and simulated in MATLAB / SIMULINK. Simulation model of the controller and BLDC drive are also presented. In order to validate the model various simulation models are studied. Simulations results depict from developed model are satisfactory and show correct performance of model.
