Lecture by Prof. Joško Deur (Zagreb University) at SZTAKI
Prof. Joško Deur, Head of the University of Zagreb's Department of Robotics and Automation of Manufacturing Systems within the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, is going to visit SZTAKI. He will also give a lecture on torque-vectoring control systems of electric vehicles. See thematic details bellow.
Abstract: The presentation first overviews optimal wheel torque allocation strategies for electric vehicles with multiple motors, whose aim is to minimize the battery energy consumption for the given total torque and yaw torque demands. The influence of energy-efficient torque vectoring control allocation on the vehicle understeer characteristic is discussed, as well. The second part of presentation deals with more advanced model predictive torque vectoring control strategies aimed at tracking the energy-efficient yaw rate reference, while providing the stability at the limits of handling.
