This paper dedicates to deal with the chattering phenomena of conventional sliding mode controllers (SMCs) applied in networked control systems (NCSs) and two new robust fuzzy sliding mode controllers for the lateral motion control of 4-wheel-independent-drive electric vehicles (4WID-EVs) are presented. It is well known that SMC has distinct advantages for nonlinear dynamic systems such as 4WID-EVs. However, a modern 4WID-EV has been a NCS, which will inevitably impose network-induced delays. The severe chartering phenomena arises when the conventional SMC is applied in NCSs. In order to make full use of the advantages of SMC and NCS in 4WID-EVs, two new fuzzy sliding-mode controllers are presented. First, the control-oriental model of a second-order dynamic system is derived, chattering problem is analyzed in detail. Then two fuzzy sliding mode control controllers are designed and the network-induced delays are determined. Afterwards, the lateral motion control model of a 4WID-EV based on CAN is presented and the proposed controllers are applied to this model. Finally, Simulations demonstrate the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed controllers.
Robust H2/Hinfin control is presented for regenerative braking of electric vehicles (EV). Combining the merit and defect of H2 optimal control and Hinfin robust control, the hybrid controller is designed to guarantee both the system performance and the robust stability. The advantage of the proposed controller lies in that it can attenuate the parameter perturbation and nonlinear uncertainty. The proposed algorithms are implemented using the software of DSP TMS320. The comparative simulation and experiment results show that the dynamic performance and robust stability of the proposed scheme is superior to the traditional PI control method, and the electric vehicle recycles more kinetic energy during regenerative braking.
For electric vehicles there is a fundamental shift in the philosophy of the electric powertrain. This manifests itself as a move away from single speed transmissions to multiple speed transmissions. For the comfort to the driver, the multispeed transmission must be achieved with seamless-shift technology. The eDCT is a novel design concept for electric vehicles that takes inspiration from DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) technology, from which the eDCT takes all the benefits but with a reduction in terms of weight, size, power loss and cost. The solution is an ingenious mechanical design that is controlled by a reduced set of transmission control software, when compared to alternative automated transmission technology, giving performance and efficiency improvements that can translate into a greater vehicle range or a smaller battery pack. The latest generation of eDCT design has allowed the opportunity to introduce flexibility into the design in terms of motor location, through modularity of design, allowing opposing motor or parallel motor installation, further increasing the desirability of the design for different applications. The opposing motor design has been integrated into a demonstrator vehicle, a Mercedes Vito Minibus. The cost and efficiency benefits of the eDCT in this application are detailed together with the first results of the testing on this vehicle.
The paper presents an advanced modular photovoltaic system designed for Pug-in Small Electric Vehicles (PsEV) electricity supply in remote applications. The concept is based on the modularity of the photovoltaic (PV) power supply system (PVbox) that can be multiplied in order to fully cover the electricity demand of each application. Based on that the interconnection between multiple PVboxes is done via an Intelligent Connection System (ICS) specially designed for this application. During the design phase the adaptability of the system was the primary focus that determined the PVbox to work as an off-grid system with the battery storage capacity included and an on-grid back-up (in available). The idea was to make the PVbox compact and lightweight, with the maximization of the photovoltaic (PV) power output of the system. Another key factor was the development of an innovative energy management system to cover the possibility of supplying a wide range of plug-in small electric vehicles (PsEV). An in-depth analysis was made to refine the PV system solution in order to maximize the system potential with the results presented below. The results of the paper show that the advanced modular photovoltaic system for plug-in small electric vehicles (PsEV) can be a good alternative for off the grid and remote applications.

Optimizing the efficiency of primary and secondary coil configurations for Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer (DWPT) in Electric Vehicles (EVs) requires means for accurate calculation of the mutual inductance in an array of coils. Based on finite element simulation method, we present a quick and accurate method for calculating the energy transfer capabilities of a given DWPT array. By consecutively switching on and off every coil and driving them with a constant current ramp rate, mutual inductances and a coupling coefficient matrix of the whole configuration is easily calculated. This method allows for relatively easy optimization and up-scaling of DWPT systems to multiple arrays of primary and secondary coils as well as implementing various coil designs and configurations. The data acquired using this method may also be used during real-time applications providing indications of vehicle relative alignment.
Battery technology is the bottleneck of the electric vehicles (EVs). It is important, both in theory and practical application, to do research on the modeling and state estimation of batteries, which is essential to optimizing energy management, extending the life cycle, reducing cost, and safeguarding the safe application of batteries in EVs. However, the batteries, with strong time-variables and nonlinear characteristics, are further influenced by such random factors such as driving loads, operational conditions, in the application of EVs. The real-time, accurate estimation of their state is challenging. The classification of the estimation methodologies for estimating state-of-charge (SoC) of battery focusing with the estimation method/algorithm, advantages, drawbacks, and estimation error are systematically and separately discussed. Especially for the battery packs existing of the inevitable inconsistency in cell capacity, resistance and voltage, the advanced characterizing monomer selection, and bias correction- based method has been described and discussed. The review also presents the key feedback factors that are indispensable for accurate estimation of battery SoC, it will be helpful for ensuring the SoC estimation accuracy. It will be very helpful for choosing an appropriate method to develop a reliable and safe battery management system and energy management strategy of the EVs. Finally, the paper also highlights a number of key factors and challenges, and presents the possible recommendations for the development of next generation of smart SoC estimation and battery management systems for electric vehicles and battery energy storage system.
Energy storage system (ESS) is an essential component of electric vehicles, which largely affects their driving performance and manufacturing cost. A hybrid energy storage system (HESS) composed of rechargeable batteries and ultracapacitors shows a significant potential for maximally exploiting their complementary characteristics. This study focuses on optimal HESS sizing of an example electric vehicle using a multi-objective optimization algorithm, with the overarching goal of reducing the ESS cost while prolonging battery life. To this end, a battery state-of-health model is incorporated to quantitatively investigate the impact of component sizing on battery life. The wavelet- transform-based power management algorithm is adopted to realize the power coordination between the batteries and ultracapacitors, in which the ultracapacitors are responsible for handling high-frequency power transients, whereas the batteries deal with average power leveling. The Urban Dynamometer Driving Schedule is used to represent real power demands.
Norway is currently the largest market in the world for electric vehicles compared to the total number of vehicles sold, and there is also a political goal in Norway to stop the sale of new conventional cars1 by 2025. Changing to non-emission transport can result in approx. 1.5 mill. private electric vehicles in 2030, resulting in an energy need of 4 TWh, which represents an increase of 3% of the Norwegian electricity consumption. The increased number of electric vehicles will not be an energy problem, but it can be a capacity related problem in the distribution grid if all households are charging at the same time - in addition to their usual consumption of electricity. This paper presents results from a research project evaluating the consequences of the increasing share of electric vehicles and the potential for demand response and flexibility in charging. Results are based on a survey performed among households with electric vehicles and meter data of the energy consumption from charging of a selection of the most common electrical vehicles in Norway.
