Aspects of today's and future vehicle drives that are especially worth considering are those that concern the energy consumption; the decrease of which is in the public interest. Drive engineering solutions resulting in the lowest energy consumption today can be connected to hybrid vehicles and to state-of-the-art vehicle drives, with a permanent magnet (PM) synchronous machine built into them. With respect to this fact, a general analysis is provided on the drive techniques of the machines that have such drives in the group of the applied electrical machines and energy storage, as well as on computer aided energy management and vehicle control aspects and relations, which establishes a successful co-ordination of the said group.
