A simulation environment that can be efficiently utilised in the design and test process of Brushless DC (BLDC) drive system used for Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) or electric vehicles (EVs) and tuning of its controller is proposed in this paper. The typical construction and operation of BLDC motor and a derivation of its mathematical model and also the derived model implementation in MATLAB/Simulink is presented. The effect of different techniques to control the modelled BLDC motor and the controllers design is also analysed. Design, simulations, and experimental results are also included.
