  1. 1. Control of Systems with Limited Capacity

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology (LTH)

    Author : Stefan Solyom; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; voltage collapse; power systems; anti-windup; piecewise linear systems; synthesis; ABS; PID control; LMI; Automation; robotics; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Virtually all real life systems are such that they present some kind of limitation on one or many of its variables, physical quantities. These systems are designated in this thesis as systems with limited capacity. This work is treating control related problems of a subclass of such systems, where the limitation is a critical factor.

  2. 2. Tire Models for Use in Braking Applications

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology (LTH)

    Author : Jacob Svendenius; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tire model; friction; brush model; combined slip; vehicle;

    Abstract : The tire is a significant part for control of a vehicle. For a well-working brake system the contact properties between the tire and the ground is the limiting factor for a safe braking. To get optimal performance it is important that the system can utilize all friction resources. READ MORE

  3. 3. Automation and traction control of articulated vehicles

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Ulf Andersson; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Reglerteknik; Control Engineering;

    Abstract : Articulated machines such as load-haul-dump machines, wheel loaders and haulers operate in many different environments and driving conditions. In particular they need to be able to perform well with road conditions and loads that can change drastically, setting hard requirements on performances and robustness. READ MORE

  4. 4. Improving emergency braking performance of heavy vehicles

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Leon Henderson; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; heavy vehicles; pneumatic brake actuator; ABS; pneumatic braking system; Slip control braking; HGV; vehicle testing; tyre dynamics;

    Abstract : Previous studies by the Cambridge Vehicle Dynamics Consortium (CVDC) have suggested that, by improving the control bandwidth of conventional Heavy Goods Vehicle(HGV) brake actuators and using a ‘slip control’ braking strategy, HGV stopping distances could be reduced by up to 30% over existing systems. The work covered in this thesis looks to: validate the CVDC’s previous braking performance predictions through Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) simulation, investigate how in-plane tyre dynamics may influence such a system’s performance, develop and build a next generation high-bandwidth braking system for vehicle implementation and carry out comparative back-to-back vehicle tests between the new system and commercially available HGV ABS.

  5. 5. Nonlinear Model Predictive Control for Autonomous Vehicles

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Paolo Falcone; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : In this thesis we consider the problem of designing and implementing Model Predictive Controllers (MPC) for stabilizing the dynamics of an autonomous ground vehicle. For such a class of systems, the non-linear dynamics and the fast sampling time limit the real-time implementation of MPC algorithms to local and linear operating regions. READ MORE
