    Abstract: In an electric drive system in which a battery is not connected to a DC bus, even when a load on a traveling electric motor increases suddenly, it is made possible to avoid such a situation that the DC bus voltage drops to a level equal to or lower than an operating voltage of an inverter and the inverter stops working. To this end, a DC bus voltage drop prevention device controls such that, when the voltage of the DC bus drops below a first threshold value, the output torque of the traveling electric motor is decreased according to an amount of decrease in the voltage of the DC bus, and when the voltage of the DC bus drops below a second threshold voltage lower than the first threshold voltage, the output torque of the traveling electric motor is decreased to zero or a value within a range of magnitude with which a work vehicle stays stationary on a level ground.
