In today's world electric vehicles gain more share of the vehicle market each passing year. Although the first EV was made back in 1821. by Thomas Davenport, only in the past few decades did they begin to gain popularity as their operating distance and reliability grew rapidly. Now the leading vehicle manufacturer companies all have their own EVs constructed and there are even companies (such as Tesla Motors) that specializes in electric cars and their powertrain components.

As climate change causes countries to change their climate and energy policies, their support for researches and development in this topic also presses electromobility forward. The future spread of electromobility prognosticates the justification of a new, faster and cheap development mechanism.

The purpose of this project is to investigate the realization of a modular, small-scale, cost-efficient model of an electric powertrain, and make the first steps towards carrying out such model.

The priority of this paper is the presentation of the realized motor control by describing both the relevant elements of the microcontroller and the implemented control loop.

This is extended by the chapter presenting the supercapacitors with their operation and model. The final project ends with the demonstration of measurements done on the realized motor control.
