Analysis of synchronous moment for active front steering and a two actuated wheels of electric vehicle based on dynamic stability enhancement

Active Front Steering (AFS) and Direct Yaw moment Controller (DYC) are the vehicle smart systems to improve the vehicle stability and safety. The AFS uses front wheels Steer-By-Wire (SBW) system. DYC uses Rear Independent in Wheel Actuated Electric Vehicles (RIWA-EVs). It generates yaw moment to correct the vehicle state deviations. The proposed controller algorithm consists of two levels. First level feedback controller evaluates the optimal yaw moment generated to achieve the desired vehicle trajectory motion with minimize the yaw rate and side-slip errors. The second level controller is utilized to allocate the required front steer angle and traction/ regeneration to the RIWA embedded in rear wheels by taking into account the tire slip. An optimal Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR) controller is designed, and its controller effectiveness is evaluated under various input driving manoeuvres. The results indicate that the integrated AFS/DYC can significantly stabilize the vehicle motion and highly reduce the driver’s workload. The laboratory experiment of AFS subsystem, for adequate actual front steering angle is measured, in order to apply in vehicle model to predict the responses. The results disclose that the RMS can be an effective route to monitor the vehicle stability.
