This paper describes a comparative study allowing the selection of the most appropriate electric propulsion system for a parallel Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). This study is based on an exhaustive review of the state of the art and on an effective comparison of the performances of the four main electric propulsion systems that are the dc motor, the(More)
This paper describes active fault-tolerant control systems for a high-performance induction-motor drive that propels an electrical vehicle (EV) or a hybrid one (HEV). The proposed systems adaptively reorganize themselves in the event of sensor loss or sensor recovery to sustain the best control performance, given the complement of remaining sensors.(More)
In this paper a fuzzy logic, rule based control strategy is proposed for a parallel hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). The strategy controls the amount of energy flow among components in order to satisfy the driver demand, optimize energy consumption and reduce polluting emissions. After modelling powertrain components, the strategy is tested by simulation with(More)
This paper investigates the use of fuzzy logic for fault detection and diagnosis in a pulsewidth modulation voltage source inverter (PWM-VSI) induction motor drive. The proposed fuzzy technique requires the measurement of the output inverter currents to detect intermittent loss of firing pulses in the inverter power switches. For diagnosis purposes, a(More)
This paper proposes a strategy to minimize the losses of an induction motor propelling and Electric Vehicle (EV). The proposed control strategy, based on a Direct Flux and Torque Control (DTC) scheme, utilizes the stator flux as control variable and the flux level is selected in accordance with torque demand of the EV to achieve the efficiency optimized(More)
This paper presents system modeling, analysis, and simulation of an electric vehicle (EV) with two independent rear wheel drives. The traction control system is designed to guarantee the EV dynamics and stability when there are no differential gears. Using two in-wheel electric motors makes it possible to have torque and speed control in each wheel. This(More)
A large number of adjustable – speed drives in industry and emerging applications such as automotive (EV or HEV) require high dynamic performances, robustness against parameter variation and also reliability. parameter detuning and mechanical speed sensor faults lead to a deterioration of the performances and even to instability. therefore condition(More)
Abstract—This paper presents a specific controller architecture devoted to obtain a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor drive robust to mechanical sensor failure. In order to increase the reliability which is a key issue in industrial and transportation applications (Electric or Hybrid ground vehicle or aerospace actuators) two virtual sensors (a two stage(More)
This paper describes a fault-tolerant control system for a high-performance induction motor drive that propels an electrical vehicle (EV) or hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). In the proposed control scheme, the developed system takes into account the controller transition smoothness in the event of sensor failure. Moreover, due to the EV or HEV requirements(More)
