​Work package 4

​This WP aims to achieve an inherent stability of the vehicle thanks to extensive use of virtual modelling to deal in the most effective way with specific driving dynamic issues and constraints of electric powertrain: Intrinsic stability (steering, braking), control actuation, regenerative braking efficiency, etc…. The AMBER-ULV multiple drive powertrain configuration offers a unique opportunity to explore more flexible strategies: more decoupling capability, local independent regenerative braking management, integrated chassis control through local traction

management, etc… All these strategies will support the vehicle dynamics management, in terms of safety and comfort, and also contribute to the regenerative braking efficiency.

These new strategies exploration, evaluation and implementation requires new models and methodologies, as actual vehicle and component models, developed for ICE and hybrid vehicles, never had to deal with the same issues.

​The objective is to virtually validate a new integrated vehicle dynamics control implemented in an AMESim dynamic vehicle model, with new EV dedicated modelling and analysis features. These validated integrated dynamic controls will be implemented in a rapid prototyping platform in WP 6.

The tasks within WP4 are:

  • ​Virtual modelling
  • Integrated Vehicle Dynamics Control

  • Control algorithm integration on the unified control platform

  • Driving test including ESC

  • Technical Management
