This paper presents the results of an investigation into suitable torque control schemes for an electric vehicle application. The electric vehicle drive train consists of rewound induction motors and a three-level IGBT inverter switching at 10kHz. The schemes investigated are Direct Torque Control DTC with two-level IGBT inverter, and DTC with threelevel IGBT. The results of Matlab- Simulink simulations and a comparison between the control schemes are presented. It is found that the DTC using three-level IGBT scheme is best for this application.
