Analysis of a Series/Fail-Safe Electro-Hydrostatic Brake System Concept 960990

The objective of this research is to create a new brake system with fewer mechanical parts, higher performance, greater flexibility for adaptation to new functions, and lower cost.
A simple/series electro-hydrostatic brake system is investigated as an inexpensive, reliable, and redundant integrated brake system that can include the functions; Boost, ABS, TCS, VDC, etc.
Production issues are considered. The required motor power is the most critical and is estimated by simulation based on data from experiments. To reduce this power a flow boost self-energizing mechanism with computer control is explored, and it is found that the effect is significant. Robustness of the control for pad friction fluctuation is also analyzed, and the limitation is estimated.
The result of analysis shows that a competitive commercial product can be developed.
