Control Methods of Active Front Wheel Steering for 4WD Electric Vehicle
Based on two freedom degrees of vehicle model, control method which takes yaw rate and sideslip angle as system state, and front wheel corner and direct yaw moment as control input is put forward. Considering uncertainty of velocity and direct yaw moment, feedforward-feedback controllers are designed. Four wheel drive force are allocated by using feedforward compensation and yaw moment which is formed by driving force difference value. It makes yaw rate and sideslip well of tracking the desirable model when the vehicle drive steering. Finally, vehicle handling stability is studied on conditions of step input and sine input by simulation.
