Extending vehicle linear behaviour: a retrospective approach through design and simulation strategies

Full Electric Vehicles (FEVs) with in-wheel motors offer more choices to dynamists and control engineers to fine tune the vehicle for better performance during steady state and transient manoeuvres. This paper investigates the design and simulation strategies to extend vehicle dynamics linear behaviour. A set of linear, non-linear and Multi-Body System (MBS) models are used to examine the lateral dynamics. A fully featured model of Subaru Impreza is constructed in MSC-Adams and various ISO standard test manoeuvres are performed and the response is validated against the test track data for Subaru Impreza. A torque biasing mechanism is implemented to extend the linear handling response of the vehicle and yaw rate gain associated with the vehicle architecture is improved.
