2.3. Practical considerations

On the one hand the AC machines have better

efficiency and higher reliability. They are also less

expensive. This is especially evident on large power

rate motors. At the power rates discussed in this

article for the mentioned kart (under 10 kW), the

difference is getting less significant.

However, as can be seen in Table 2, even the

simplest power converter for AC machine has a

complicated control and higher costs.

DC machines are available in low rated voltages

which are suitable for personal electric vehicles (like Table 2. Optimal number of switches needed per

the kart) that are likely to run on low voltage machine

batteries. Since the voltage source for the kart is, as
