This paper presents a methodology of tests of traction asynchronous drives applied in electric vehicles. It is similar to Urban Driving Cycle ECE-15 (UDC). The objective of the research is to verify the developed methodology through tests performed on a laboratory simulator, which consists of energy-saving asynchronous motor controlled by a frequency inverter (converter). Vector Control on the drive is used for smooth speed regulation over a wide range at high values of efficiency and power factor. Contemporary measuring and control devices and special software products are used for capturing the dynamic characteristics when starting, stopping and changing the speed set point of the drive. Some of tests are presented and an experimental verification of the developed methodology is made. An optimal setting of the drive parameters can be made to minimize the electric energy consumption.
