The Regenerative Braking Control Strategy of Four-Wheel-Drive Electric Vehicle Based on Power Generation Efficiency of Motors 2013-01-0412
Nowadays, the endurance mileage of electric vehicle is commonly short. For the purpose of enhancing the endurance mileage of 4WD electric vehicles, this paper proposes a new control strategy based on the generation efficiency of in-wheel motors. When the brake strength is low, the strategy defines the torque on which the motor has the highest generate efficiency as the upper limit of the braking torque of the front axle. What's more, the proportion of mechanical braking force is reduced. Because of these, the vehicle has a higher generation power. The simulation model is built up by using Matlab/Simulink and CarSim software, and the strategy is simulated under several driving cycles. The result shows that, comparing with the two traditional braking force distribution strategies, the new strategy can obviously improve the regenerative efficiency.
