Development of Electric Oil Pump in Hybrid Vehicle based on BLAC Motor and AUTOSAR Platform 2019-01-0765
Traditional hybrid vehicles operated two types of oil pump, mechanical for combustion engine and electrical for electric motor, to supply oil pressure for automatic transmission in each power source. New hybrid vehicles has only one electrical pump to reduce system volume and to improve fuel efficiency. Purposes of this study are to make standardization of firmware development process for Oil Pump Unit (OPU) and Electric Oil Pump (EOP) and to apply BLAC (BrushLess AC) motor instead of BLDC (BrushLess DC) motor. In old-fashioned non-Operating System (OS) firmware, it was convenient to calculate control timing for motor control, however the firmware was deeply dependent to specific MCU. In other words, much of efforts and time are needed if new MicroController Unit (MCU) were applied. In this study, new standard development process for MCU firmware can be built up based on AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture (AUTOSAR) platform by developing specific motor Complex Device Driver (CDD). In existing system, the OPU supplied with high-voltage from battery drives the BLDC motor driven with three-phase block commutation method through the hall sensor inputs. In new system of this study, FOC (Field Oriented Control) algorithm for BLAC motor will be applied to improve motor performance and sensorless algorithm will reduce failure risk caused by the sensor.
