This Paper presents compact regenerative braking scheme for a PM BLDC motor driven electric two wheeler. Electric vehicles have been attracting unprecedented attention in light of the volatile market prices and prospect of diminishing supplies of fuel. Advances in battery technology and significant improvements in electrical motor efficiency have made electric vehicles an attractive alternative, especially for short distance commuting. This paper describes the application of Brushless DC (BLDC)
