Modelling and testing of in-wheel motor drive intelligent electric vehicles based on co-simulation with Carsim/Simulink

To study the overall performance of the distributed drive intelligent electric vehicle (EV), a in-wheel motor drive (IWMD) vehicle is developed in this study. The configuration and 11-degrees of freedom model of IWMD EV is introduced firstly. Then, the co-simulation model of IWMD EV based on Carsim and Matlab/Simulink is established. The block design is employed for the co-simulation modelling, including the in-wheel motor model, driver model, tyre model, steering model, braking model, suspension model, aerodynamic model, and road surface model. The effectiveness and the reasonableness of the co-simulation model of IWMD EV are verified by the snake testing with on the campus road. The co-simulation model provides accuracy and reliable simulation method for the path-tracking and self-driving study of IWMD intelligent vehicle in the future.
