The automotive industry is progressing expeditiously. The popularity of electric vehicles (EV) has shot up over the last few years. As a matter of fact, electric drive systems such as DC motor drives, one of the electrical drives, are rapidly gaining prominence because of their high efficiency, better dynamic response and low upkeep. The following work deals with the drivetrain of the pre-existing electric motorcycle comprised of a brushed DC motor. In this work, a system is developed to maintain the speed of the electric motorcycle at a set speed, under various disturbances using PI control. A detailed mathematical model, transfer function and simulation of the same are obtained using the software package MATLAB, SIMULINK. The controlled DC motor is made to track a variable speed set point with zero steady-state error and desirable disturbance rejection capabilities.
