Among the factors slowing down the production of the electric vehicles in big series, we mention the problem of weak autonomy directly bound to the weak storage capacity of the batteries. In this context, this paper describes a strategy of power chain vector control reducing the consumption and integrating a system of energy recuperation. Besides, this power chain is conceived by an analytic approach optimizing the autonomy and reducing the production cost of electric vehicle. The choice of the static converter to electromagnetic switches is a determining factor for the reliability of the global system and the reduction of the consumption. This choice poses a problem of adaptation of this low-frequency converter type to the global system that will be treated in this paper.
