Based on Adams and Matlab Co-Simulation and Experimentation Research for Independent 4WD EV
Analyzing the structural property of model vehicle, a multi-body dynamic model of a full independent 4-wheel-drive electric vehicle(4WD EV) is established by using automatic dynamic analysis of mechanical systems (ADAMS) software, and an electric motor and drive-control system is established under Matlab/Simulink environment. Co-simulation based on the two soft wares is under control of the equality power driving force distribution strategy controller. The results of co-simulation show that the co-simulation is effective and the model’s rationality is validated. It could be applied in the following experiments in complex circumvents, and give theoretic supports.
