An electric vehicle is known for movable storage batteries, and emerging technology. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) can extract strength from either chemical fuels or stored electricity, wherein the latter is normally regenerated by using plugging into the electrical grid. PHEV era presents an effective answer for accomplishing better gasoline economy, higher performance, and decrease emissions, compared with traditional automobiles. In PHEV system, on-board charger plays a major role in new trend of fast charging technique. This can be achieved with participating the charger with the converter or assimilating the charger with the motor drive. Integration of driving/charging modes by various controlling converter were employed. This paper deals with series plug in hybrid vehicle controlled by closed-loop control which is being used in switched reluctance motor (SRM). SRM has mounting interest in electrified automobiles due to fantastic overall performance and has been regarded as a low-value system. It has focused windings on the stator and no magnetic foundation at the rotor. Owed to the higher torque-production competence with decrease undulation in torque, an SRM with a higher quantity of stator and rotor poles is an ability applicant for purchase packages in plug-in hybrid electric powered automobiles. In this proposed gadget, the electrical strength drift in the drivetrain is meticulous by means of an electricity electronic converter with less power substituting devices and the operation of the machines levels is unbiased. It lets in the preferred power adaptationamongthe SR motor,the engine generator, and the batteryunder distinctive operation modes. The paper focuses on the layout and implementation of 3 phase switched disinclination motor force with combined charging characteristic all through riding mode of plug in hybrid electric automobile. During driving mode, the excitation interval, driving interval and charging interval were obtained by varying commutation angle with reference to rotor position. For this operation new energy efficient converter is derived to reduce voltage across each phase windings were analyzed and simulated. Simulation consequences primarily based on MATLAB or Simulink demonstrate the efficiency of the motor drive for automobile application and also enhance the market adoption of PHEV.
