Objectives: The main purpose of this study is to investigate switched reluctance motor for E-rickshaw propulsion system. Methods: The paper gives details of Literature review of current system incorporated in electric three wheeled propulsion, selection process of SRM, the design procedure of 8/6, 48V, 0.5 kW, 2000 rpm Switched reluctance motor for E-Rickshaw. Design validation and performance estimation is done by virtue of finite element analysis (FEA) tool using Ansys Maxwell Software. Findings: In this present work we found that it is possible to deploy SRM instead of current existing brushless direct current motors (BLDC) and PMSM (Permanent magnet synchronous motors) which are used in power train of electric three wheelers. Incorporating SRM would boost to promote “MAKE IN INDIA” and thus the country would become independent in electric vehicle market, hardware of the proposed SRM is also developed and tested. Novelty: The work done with investigation of SRM for E-rickshaw has not been studied until now although it possesses various advantages over existing system like high reliability and wide torquespeed range which is the basic requirement of propulsion motor in electric vehicles. SRM also provides several benefits like simple construction, high speed, resilience and good fault tolerance capability as all phases function independently.
