A Quick Overview

In olden days, the number of electronics components that had been used in Automobiles was not predominant. Nowadays, the sensors and actuators that are infused into Automobiles are more in number. It is a very tedious process to read and measure those signals manually. As the Automobile industry moves towards autonomous driving conditions, good control is needed to support thick and thin. Hence, the need for a control system came into the picture. This is where “the control of vehicles” emerged as an important topic.
   This course throws light on the basics of the control system and its related concepts of control in Electric Vehicles. Learning this course would enhance students’ knowledge of controllers and behavioural concepts of various control systems. Current Automotive market is moving towards the manufacturing and sales of Electric vehicles. Most of the Indian OEMs and their suppliers have started working on EV and its related application. Learning about the control algorithm and its relevance in EV/HEV will stand a good stead in the current job market.

1Introduction to control system

Fundamental control components are discussed in this section. Students can learn the basics of control system Engineering from this section right from types of the control system to various components of control theories.

  • Fundamentals of control engineering
  • Important terms
  • Feedback system
  • Transfer functions
  • Poles zeros
  • State-space
  • Laplace transform

2Stability analysis

This section dealt with the stability analysis of control systems. It is a prerequisite for any of the systems to be stable to give satisfactory behaviour. Students can learn about stability theories and how to implement the same using the MATLAB command.

  • Stability
  • Bode plot and MATLAB tools for control system engineering

3Control theory applied to power converters and motors

A PID controller is considered to be very important in the industrial standpoint. This section helps to learn the significance of the PID controller and how to auto-tune the gain parameters of the PID controller in MATLAB simulation environment.

  • PID control actions and simulations for step response

4Controller design for DC motor

In an Electric Vehicle, the motor plays a crucial part to propel the vehicle. The motor characteristic needs to be known to control it efficiently. This section helps to learn about the transfer function of DC motors and control of DC-DC power converter.


  • DC motor transfer function
  • Setpoint tracking and disturbance rejection

5Introduction to Digital Control

This section briefs the difference between analogue and digital systems. The significance of discrete control systems and the domain that is to be defined for the discrete control system. Student can get an insight on the advantage of using Discrete control system over the Analog control system

  • Limitations of analog control
  • Discrete control system
  • Z-domain analysis

6Using Microcontroller for Motor Control

 Students can learn the fundamentals of microprocessors and microcontrollers. This section gives knowledge about the architecture of Microcontroller and how it can be programmed and interfaced.
  • Digital power control
  • Microcontroller fundamentals
  • Programming and interface

7Vehicle Dynamics Control

Vehicle Dynamics Control System Algorithm is significant in the Connected Cars System & using such algorithms with data interaction between sensor & actuators help the engineers to maintain the safety & security of the vehicle. .The importance of a Master Controller and how it is interfaced with other controllers is also discussed in this topic. 
  • Intelligent and connected vehicle system
  • Master controller and its interfacing with the local controller

Projects Overview

Electric Vehicle


Students are required to develop a pure Electric Vehicle in MATLAB Simulink environment. This project aims at using Li-ion Battery and an Induction motor which are widely popular among EVs.The significances of using an Induction motor are that it has good starting torque and good speed regulation. The project has to be developed with a suitable power converter and controller. The main components that have to be taken care are

  • Li-ion Battery
  • Induction motor
  • Motor controller
  • Power converter

Electric Rickshaw


Developing an Electric Rickshaw model in MATLAB Simulink environment, helps the student to know about the functionality of each and every block of the model. The model should contain Permanent magnet brushed type motor. The entire simulation should run for three different standard drive cycles for 100km at a constant speed of 45 km/hr and the following parameters should be documented   

  • Energy consumptions
  • The temperature rise of motor
  • The temperature rise of the controller


  • Freshers, College Students & Working Professionals can take up this course.
  • Working Professionals, especially mid-career employees who are looking for a job change can take up this course & gain knowledge from this, which can help them in switching careers.
  • Students who are interested to pursue a Master’s in Control System Engineering
