Integrated momentum wheel and differential braking control to improve vehicle dynamic performance

The most effective method to improve the stability and road handling of vehicles is active yaw moment control, as shown by recent studies. In order to improve the vehicle dynamic performance corrective yaw moment action should be applied to a vehicle. The corrective yaw moment is directly related to the interaction between the tires and road, which could either be generated directly or indirectly. The performance of the yaw moment control system, subsequently, in low-friction road conditions, would noticeably be reduced. In order to generate the corrective yaw moment, an innovative method is proposed by utilizing a momentum wheel that works independent of the tire/road interaction. When integrated with a direct yaw moment control system, a comprehensive dynamic analysis of this model has been carried out. Combined with an integrated momentum wheel and differential braking, computer simulation results for the vehicle model, under different road conditions, are presented.
