A high-performance electric motorcycle (HPEM) integrated charger-inverter (ICI) with an induction motor (IM) is proposed in this article. Typical components are shared in drive and charge modes, resulting in savings of weight, volume, and cost. A two-stage ICI for AC induction motor powertrain with power factor correction (PFC) and battery charger functions is considered. Despite high voltage ripple on the DC link, a high bandwidth nonlinear controller can reject such a drawback and adequately provide a constant current or constant voltage charging process. The simulation results of 7 kW ICI are provided to validate the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed system. Finite element analysis (FEA) determines the torque and losses of IM in charging mode. View Full-Text
