A comparative analysis of transients occurring during start of the asynchronous motor of an electromobile that is supplied from accumulator battery or from combined power source – parallel-connected accumulator battery and supercapacitor is carried out. The results of transient simulation in the Matlab Simulink software package showed that during the start of the asynchronous motor the supercapacitor limits current in the accumulator battery, and thus increases its life. It is confirmed that the use of a combined power source in comparison with the accumulator battery allows to increase the number of possible consecutive starts of asynchronous motor of electromobile and its mileage on a single charge. References 7, figures 6, tables 10.
Key words: asynchronous motor, supercapacitor, accumulator battery, electromobile, computer simulation.
