The current development towards multiple processor cores in personal computers is making distribution and paral-lelization of simulation software increasingly important. The possible speedups from parallelism are however often limited with the current centralized solver algorithms, which are commonly used in today's simulation environments. An alternative(More)
Several approaches exist for modelling of physical systems, often implemented in a modelling language. Due to differences in modelling approaches, it is a complicated procedure to interchange information between different modelling languages, documents or applications. This puts a constraint on what the users can do in terms of custom simulators and on what(More)
This paper presents a control system based on linear quadratic state feedback and state estimation for an hydraulic actuator with a exible mechanical load. The purpose of the control system is to improve the dynamic properties by reducing the oscillatory behavior of the load and to eliminate the steady state error in the load position caused by external(More)
—In steering-related active safety systems, active steering is a key component. Active steering refers to the possibility to control the road wheel angle or the required torque to turn the wheels by means of an electronic signal. Due to the high axle loads in heavy vehicles, hydraulic power is needed to assist the driver in turning the wheels. One solution(More)
This paper describes how models from different simulation tools can be connected and simulated on different processors by using the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) and the transmission line element method (TLM). Interconnectivity between programs makes it possible to model each part of a complex system with the best suited tool, which will shorten the(More)
This work studies an innovate working hydraulic system design for mobile applications, referred to as flow control. The fundamental difference compared to load sensing systems is that the pump is controlled based on the operator's command signals rather than feedback signals from the loads. This control approach enables higher energy efficiency since the(More)
