Abstract: Generally, battery running vehicles are there in public but those are limited to small ranges and life of battery also less. So in order to overcome those limitations, we aimed at hybrid energy storage systems which are combination of battery and Super capacitor. Dual drives using in this model are switched reluctance motor and Induction motor separately for front and rear wheels respectively. So that whenever one of the motor fails, the other motor should run the vehicle. To maintain supply at the motor input, two bi-directional converters exists for the motoring and braking operations. This whole model executed in MATLAB/SIMULINK model. Battery and super capacitor gives supply agreeing to the power demand. The controllers used for the SRM and IM are hysteresis current controller and FOC controller respectively. 
Keywords: FOC-Field oriented control, IM-Induction motor, SRM-Switched reluctance motor.
