In order to suppress the torsional vibration caused by electric vehicle low-damping characteristic, a driveline simulation model was constructed in Matlab/Simulink based on permanent magnet synchronous motor(PMSM) using vector control strategy. A fuzzy self-tuning PID controller was designed to improve speed feedback and robustness of motor controller. The results show that the dynamic characteristics of electric vehicle driveline can be revealed effectively by electro-mechanical coupling method. The application of fuzzy logic method to tune PID controller can contribute a lot to solve torque ripple problem caused by mutation load and mutation control signal.
