Development of Torque Controlled Active Steering with Improving the Vehicle Stability for Brushless EPS 2007-01-1147

This article discusses a vehicle stability improvement control method that utilizes an electric power steering system (EPS) with blushless motor. The purpose is to improve the vehicle stability by increasing the steering return torque in a region where the alignment torque is saturated due to the driver's excessive steering maneuver on a slippery road. In this study, a factor analysis was performed for the alignment torque on a slippery road and the basic control to improve the vehicle dynamics stability is studied by using a linear m1odel. Next, a new control algorithm was developed based on these studies. Finally, the new control algorithm was verified to be effective through an on-vehicle test. The proposed strategy can be realized only by adding a steering wheel angle sensor signal to a conventional EPS. That can be easily obtained from electronic stability control system.
