In Electric Vehicle (EV) application, the in-wheel motors are driven by the same dc-link voltage. To reduce the space, the Voltage Source Inverters (VSIs) can share one dc-link capacitor. Long-term experiences and experimental data demonstrate that the capacitors are one of the major failures in the motor drive system. The current profile of the dc-link capacitors is the main factor for this degradation, therefore, by reducing the current harmonic components of the dc-link capacitors can increase the lifetime. In this paper, a dc-link capacitor current harmonic reduction method for dual Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) drive system in EV application is proposed. The Phase Shift Pulse Width Modulation (PSPWM) is employed in the dual inverters to reduce the harmonic components of dc-link capacitor. To verify the proposed method, a experimental platform is established and the experimental results are presented.
