The latest trend in the automobile industry is electric energy usage for vehicle propulsion. The electrical energy conversion to mechanical energy via motor is the currently accepted and safe technology. The major challenge for this is the component protection strategies. Components such as the motor, battery etc. need to be protected to enhance the life cycle of the vehicle. Also, vehicle safety is of much importance to avoid any fatalities arising with regards to the mishandling of the components. This study suffices the component protection by developing algorithmbased strategies. The algorithms are pre-fed to the controller. Development of smart motor and battery is proposed via Battery Thermal management system. The energy used is of both AC as well DC form. Energy sources for the electric energy generation are different namely, Batteries, Fuel cell etc. Energy generated through chemical reaction is stored in the battery and is eventually utilized.
