This paper presents an optimal torque allocation control method for an individual eight-wheel-drive electric vehicle to improve longitudinal and lateral stability. The proposed optimal controller is designed as a hierarchical structure with an upper level controller and a lower level controller. The upper controller including human driver model is developed using sliding mode control algorithm, which takes longitudinal velocity, side slip angle and yaw rate as control variables. The lower controller is developed using optimal control algorithm, which optimally allocates the tractive/braking torque to eight in-wheel motors and mechanical brake system independently. Numerical simulation studies, including driver-vehicle-controller in-loop and open-loop simulations, are conducted to investigate the performance of the proposed controller. The simulation results show that the proposed controller significantly improves vehicle longitudinal and lateral stability. © 2015 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd. Source

An electronic stability control (ESC) algorithm is proposed for a four in-wheel motor independent-drive electric vehicle (4MIDEV) utilizing motor driving and regenerative braking torque distribution control to improve vehicle stability. A stability judgment controller, an upper level controller, and a torque distribution algorithm are designed for the ESC system. The stability judgment controller is designed to generate the desired yaw rate and sideslip angle for vehicle stability, and the control mode, which is normal driving mode or ESC mode, is set according to the driver inputs and measurement signal inputs. The upper level controller consists of a speed tracking controller, a yaw moment controller, and four wheel-slip controllers to calculate the desired value of traction force, the desired value of yaw moment, and the four respective net torque inputs of the four in-wheel motors. The torque distribution algorithm is designed to generate each motor driving torque or regenerative braking torque input for each wheel. An average torque distribution strategy, a tire-dynamic-load-based torque distribution strategy, and a minimum-objective-function-based optimal torque distribution strategy are used separately in the torque distribution algorithm to control the motor driving torque or regenerative braking torque for vehicle stability enhancement. The proposed ESC algorithm was implemented and evaluated in a CarSim vehicle model and a MATLAB/Simulink control model. The three proposed torque distribution strategies can be used to regulate the vehicle to perform the following tasks: "single lane change," "double lane change," and "snake lane change." The simulation studies show that the yaw rate error root mean square [RMS (γ-γ-des)] decreased, on average, by 75 percent using the proposed optimal torque distribution algorithm compared with that without using stability control. © 2016 IEEE.

Electric vehicle (EV) wireless charging technology attracts more and more attentions because of its advantages of convenience, space-saving and no effect of bad weather, such as rain and snow. Firstly, model of four coil structure wireless charging system is established. Through the model, expressions of system output power and efficiency are calculated on the condition of non-sinusoidal input. Then, changing processes of output power and efficiency with frequency are discussed based on actual system parameters. Furthermore, effects of harmonics are analyzed and several results are obtained, for instance: the coil output power and efficiency will both reduce significantly when there are a large number of third order and fifth order harmonics in the input. Finally, characteristics of output power and efficiency in an actual EV wireless charging system are investigated through experiments. The experiments have verified the model and results in this paper. ©, 2015, The editorial office of Transaction of China Electrotechnical Society. All right reserved. Source

This paper develops a new wireless power transfer system circuit topology, containing LCCL impedance matching circuit in both primary and secondary sides. A new decoupling design method is proposed for circuit parameters to achieve both maximum and normal transferring power. Firstly, the maximum efficiency operation point is analyzed to get the circuit conditions. Secondly, the design method for LCCL impedance matching circuits in both primary and secondary is presented. System can achieve maximum efficiency operation by secondary side LCCL circuit, and meet the normal transferring power by primary side LCCL circuit. Lastly, an electric vehicle wireless charging system is established to verify the method. ©, 2015, The editorial office of Transaction of China Electrotechnical Society. All right reserved. Source
