A Nonlinear Proportional Controller for Electric Parking Brake (EPB) Systems 2007-01-3657

This paper presents three types of controllers for Electric Parking Brake (EPB) Systems: bang-bang, linear proportional (P), and nonlinear proportional (P) controller. Mechanical and electrical parts of EPB system are modeled and implemented using Modelica language. There is good agreement between simulation and experimental results. For the stability analysis, the EPB system is modeled as a state-dependent switched system with simplified friction dynamics. From simulation and experimental results, it turns out that the nonlinear P controller provides good uniformity in performance and robustness among them.
