Differential electronic effectiveness depends on several variables, including the torque distribution strategy and the vehicle’s speed. It is also important to note that there are several ways to improve drivability, including using torque vectoring differentials and Adaptive electronic differential control. These strategies are described in this article.
Torque distribution strategy affects differential electronic effectiveness
The efficiency of differential electronic devices depends on the torque distribution strategy that they use. An optimal torque distribution strategy optimizes the total wheel torque, minimizes drivetrain power loss, and extends driving range. The optimal torque distribution strategy is a parametric optimization problem, which depends on the speed and number of drivetrain components.
This torque distribution strategy is based on a PIDNN control strategy that maximizes the efficiency of the system. The simulation results were verified using a distributed drive AGV. Several researchers have investigated the efficiency of differential speed and torque control algorithms through a hierarchical control strategy based on PIDNN. The researchers’ work proves that an optimal torque distribution control strategy improves the stability of the vehicle.
Vehicle speed affects differential electronic effectiveness
Differential speed control can significantly affect the turning radius of a vehicle. It also increases the vehicle’s trajectory tracking ability. The electronic differential speed control algorithm uses a fuzzy control strategy to determine the torque of the drive wheels. This method is useful when a driver wishes to minimize the turning radius of the vehicle.
Adaptive electronic differential control improves drivability
Adaptive electronic differential control improves a vehicle’s drivability by improving its steering. The electronic differential speed control is influenced by the yaw moment of a vehicle and it uses a fuzzy control method to regulate torque of the drive wheel. The simulation results show that this control method is effective in improving the steering performance of the vehicle.
It has the potential to improve drivability by reducing turning radius, improving running stability, and boosting drivability. The authors of the paper, Yinghui Ge and Guangzheng Ni, have described a novel electronic differential algorithm that works on an in-wheel motor-driven electric vehicle.
Torque vectoring differentials improve drivability
A torque vectoring differential distributes driving power to individual wheels more effectively than a conventional differential. It works by varying the clamping force of each of the two overdrive gears. The result is improved drivability, and it is ideal for cars with four wheels. The system is also useful in electric vehicles.
Torque vectoring is an effective traction control system that improves driving characteristics such as agility and responsiveness. The technology allows a car to control torque at the front and rear wheels independently. This system also allows a vehicle to make quicker changes of direction without losing traction.
