This research describes the scope of design and test a traction controller to combine a 6.54 kW gasoline engine power and 2x48VDC/0.5 kW electrical brushless motors in a serial- parallel type of small hybrid electric vehicle. A central control system was designed to operate the engine which is equipped with continuous variable transmission and electric motor on rear wheel side in order to select the optimal torque in normal driving condition. The battery charging system draws its energy from the engine using two alternators: 80 Watt built-in alternator and 300 Watt additional alternator which is driven using a power take-off unit. To increase the electric charging capacity, the electric motor is able to operate as a generator during acceleration or deceleration condition (regenerative system). The static preliminary testing shows that the electric motor can generate about 38% of nominal motor’s power at 730 rpm of wheel rotation.
