Current trends are leading towards an electrified future of transportation. Its popularity amongst the public is continuously increasing this trend. Today, the demands for an economical, carbon conscience and faster mode of transportation is imperative. Thus, the proposal for a new mode of transportation known as the Hyperloop has been popularized. Although, there are only some reports regarding its design. More specifically, reports regarding the propulsion system design methodology for the Hyperloop is lackluster. This thesis provides an initial steppingstone to a modeling and simulation study for the propulsion system in a Hyperloop. PSIM is used to develop the model and design the full power system and controller. To verify and validate the design, hardware in the loop technology is used. The controller implemented is tested through a Texas Instrument digital signal processor. The Typhoon real time verification shows matching results with the PSIM offline simulation model.
