A reverse driving control method for one type of hydrostatic mobile machinery is devised in this paper. Based on the analysis of dynamics of stopping process, the relationship between engine speed and pump displacement is established. To restrict the peak value of engine overspeed within the region of the allowable value, an offline parameter determination approach complied to the requirements of average stopping deceleration is developed. The online control method using the selected parameter is presented. A flow diagram is given to illustrate the control method.
