A fuzzy logic controlled Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) for improved braking performance and directional stability

A simple and effective fuzzy logic controller is designed for an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) to improve the braking performance and directional stability of an automobile during braking and steering-braking manoeuvres on uniform and nonuniform (mu-Split) friction Surfaces. The system consists of two controllers working in tandem. The first controller works oil the longitudinal slip, and the second controller is responsible for the side-slip motion control of the vehicle. The fuzzy logic controller is implemented on a four-wheel nonlinear vehicle model with nonlinear lyre behaviour. Simulations are carried out and comparisons are made using the vehicle model with and without the fuzzy logic controlled ABS to assess controller performance.


Design and simulation of an ABS for an integrated active safety system for road vehicles
Sahin, Murat; Ünlüsoy, Yavuz Samim (2010-01-01)
A design methodology for an anti-lock braking system (ABS) controller for four-wheeled road vehicles is presented. In the study, a flexible approach was adopted considering integration with an integrated active safety system control structure. In the hierarchical control strategy proposed for the ABS controller, a high-level controller, through vehicle longitudinal acceleration-based estimation, determines reference wheel slip values, and a low-level controller attempts to track these reference slip signals...
Autopilot Design for Vehicle Cornering Through Icy Roads
Ahiska, Kenan; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2018-03-01)
In this paper, vehicle cornering along roads with low friction coefficient is studied, and an autopilot design is proposed to satisfy desired handling performance. A novel hierarchical optimization approach is presented to generate offline solutions for vehicle cornering problem along roads with different friction coefficients and radii of curvature. A vehicle status definition is introduced as a function of vehicle states that contains data to indicate handling performance. At each control instant, vehicle...
Improved torque and speed control performance in a vector-controlled PWM-VSI fed surface-mounted pmsm drive with conventional P-I controllers
Büyükkeleş, Ümit; Ersak, Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In this thesis, high performance torque and speed control for a surface-mounted permanent magnet synchronous machine (PMSM) is designed, simulated and implemented. A three-phase two-level pulse width modulation voltage-source inverter (PWM-VSI) with power MOSFETs is used to feed the PMSM. The study has three objectives. The first is to compensate the voltage disturbance caused by nonideal characteristics of the voltage-source inverter (VSI). The second is to decouple the coupled variables in the synchronous...
A sliding mode controller to minimize SRM torque ripple and noise
Bizkevelci, E; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Ertan, HB (2004-01-01)
This paper is an attempt to eliminate the torque pulsation of switched reluctance (SR) motors. It is well known that pulsed radial and tangential forces are the source of acoustic noise problems often mentioned in relation to SR motors. In this study, to control the force pulsations, phase voltage is selected as the control variable contrary to what is often encountered in the literature. The authors believe that cost effective implementation of this choice is now technically possible. Selection of appropri...

In this paper, performance of passive vibration isolators, namely rotational / linear tuned mass dampers (TMD) and lever type vibration isolators (LVI), are investigated under different configurations for optimal ride comfort. TMDs reduce vibration levels by absorbing the energy of the system, especially around natural frequencies with the help of viscous dampers. Two types of TMDs, rotational and linear, are investigated in this study. Although linear TMDs can be more easily implemented on suspension syste...
