Green Two-wheeled Mobility: Electric Scooters Using Brushless Motor based on Fuzzy Logic Controller

Hassane Bachiri, Abdelfetah Nasseri

Abstract


In the last years electric vehicles gained importance as a more sustainable alternative to traditional vehicles. The introduction of an electric power train leads to lower air-pollution emissions. ‘Electric bicycles’ are sometimes more like an electric pedaled moped, other times more like a Vespa-looking scooter with or without pedals, and they often offer good range and speeds. However, a “scooter” can also be an electric cart for personal mobility, or a skateboard-like vehicle with small handlebars. Electric scooters are the most legislatively active realm of electric bicycles, at the present time. Brushless DC (BLDC) motors are one of the electrical drives that are rapidly gaining popularity, due to their high efficiency, good dynamic response and low maintenance. In this paper, the modeling and simulation of the BLDC motor was done using the software package MATLAB/SIMULINK. The proposed fuzzy logic controller has given optimal results compared to PI controller. The simulated system using the fuzzy controller has a fast response without overshoot, zero steady state error and high load robustness.
