Changes in electricity supply to conventional vehicles due to rising fuel prices and environmental concerns have also affected three-wheeled vehicles. Three wheeled vehicles, known as Auto-rickshaws, are the most common form of transportation in India. Existing battery powered rickshaws (known as E-rickshaws) found in major cities of India face challenges such as insufficient charging points, low driving distance, high battery costs, battery replacement / disposal, etc. Battery-ultra capacitor (UC) mixed power. a source is suggested in this paper to overcome these problems. Dual power sources with compatible features, when used in conjunction, can improve overall car performance in terms of weight, volume, and efficiency. An E-rickshaw with mixed- power batteries-UC is modeled on MATLAB-Simulink in this paper. A very logical and unconventional approach to power management was used between the two sources through the efficient use of renewable energy generated during braking. The system was later tested in the Real-Time Hardware-in- Loop (HIL) area to verify the simulation results. It has been observed that the addition of an additional source with compatible features has improved the performance of the vehicle.
