In this study, anti-lock brake system control using sliding-mode controller is investigated. Different alternatives for the switching function and the sliding surface, involved in the structure of the sliding-mode controller, are explored. It was aimed to reach a better controller performance with less chattering and robustness to actuator imperfections. Regarding applicability, tire force response was modeled as a uniformly distributed uncertain parameter during controller designs. Controllers are simulated for both constant and varying coefficient of friction roads, with optimized design parameters. The effects of actuator first-order dynamics and transportation delay, which come up in practical implementations, were considered. The sliding-mode control structure which employs derivative switching function with integral sliding surface is originally proposed in this study. It is found to produce less chattering and provide more robustness, which could not be achieved side by side using former designs.


Development of a control strategy for road vehicles with semi-active suspensions using a full vehicle ride model
Erdoğan, Zeynep; Ünlüsoy, Yavuz Samim; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
The main motivation of this study is the design of a control strategy for semi-active vehicle suspension systems to improve ride comfort for road vehicles. In order to achieve this objective, firstly the damping characteristics of Magnetorheological dampers will be reviewed. Then an appropriate semi-active control strategy manipulating the inputs of the dampers to create suitable damping forces will be designed. Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR) control strategy is the primary focus area on semi-active contr...
A genetic algorithm for 2d shape optimization
Chen, Wei Hang; Oral, Süha; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
In this study, an optimization code has been developed based on genetic algorithms associated with the finite element modeling for the shape optimization of plane stress problems. In genetic algorithms, constraints are mostly handled by using the concept of penalty functions, which penalize infeasible solutions by reducing their fitness values in proportion to the degrees of constraint violation. In this study, An Improved GA Penalty Scheme is used. The proposed method gives information about unfeasible ind...

Küreksiz, Funda; Platin, Bülent Emre; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
In this thesis, a test platform based on real-time facilities and embedded software is designed to verify the performance of a controller model in real time. By the help of this platform, design errors can be detected earlier and possible problems can be solved cost-effectively without interrupting the development process. An unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) model is taken as a plant model due to its importance in current and future military operations. Among several autopilot modes, the altitude hold mod...
Modeling of the dynamics of multi-axle steered vehicles
Bayar, Kerim; Ünlüsoy, Yavuz Samim; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
Four wheel steering (4WS) is a concept proven to be beneficial in low speed applications requiring large steering angles, which is the case in city traffic or parking. By steering the rear wheels in the opposite direction to the front ones, maneuverability can be improved. However, a conflict is encountered at high speeds for all the steering strategies developed. If sharper response is achieved, this is at the expense of undesirably large vehicle sideslip angles. On the other hand, small vehicle sideslip a...
Modeling and control of constrained flexible joint parallel manipulators
Oğan, Osman Can; İder, Kemal; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
The purpose of the thesis is to achieve a hybrid force and motion control method of parallel manipulators working in a constrained environment, in the presence of joint flexibility that occurs at the actuated joints. A flexible joint is modeled and the equations of motion of the parallel manipulator are derived by using the Lagrange formulation. The structural damping of the active joints, viscous friction at the passive joints and the rotor damping are also considered in the model. It is shown that in a fl...
