  • Transmission ratio calibration for electro-mechanically actuated
           continuously variable transmission
    • Authors: Izhari Izmi Mazali, Kamarul Baharin Tawi, Bambang Supriyo, Nurulakmar Abu Husain, Mohd Salman Che Kob, Mohd Sabri Che Kob
      Pages: 127 - 133
      Abstract: Continuously variable transmission (CVT) with a metal pushing V-belt is widely used by car manufacturers for its advantages particularly in fuel economy. Nevertheless, this CVT currently applies a hydraulic-based actuation system to change and to maintain the desired CVT ratio which leads to reduction of CVT's efficiency due to engine's continuous power consumption. To address this issue, a prototype of electro-mechanically actuated CVT is introduced in this paper. Here, the prototype's working principle is explained and the process to evaluate its workability is described. This evaluation process is necessary to provide reference data for future development of the prototype especially in the areas of ratio control and belt's clamping force control. The evaluation's results suggest that the prototype has a ratio range from 2.93 to 0.67 with using only one DC motor to vary the ratio instead of typically two DC motors used by previous designs of electro-mechanically actuated CVT.

  • Development of estimated disturbance rejection feedback for an armoured
           vehicle using active front wheel steering
    • Authors: Vimal Rau Aparow, Khisbullah Hudha, Megat Mohamad Hamdan Megat Ahmad, Shohaimi Abdullah
      Pages: 134 - 143
      Abstract: An unwanted yaw motion occurred at the centre of gravity (CG) of the wheeled armoured vehicle caused by the impulse force generated during gun turret firing. The recoil force from the gun fire tends to create instability conditions for the armoured vehicle during firing condition and affects the dynamic performance of armoured vehicle in lateral direction. In this paper, an active safety system, active front wheel steering (AFWS) system using estimated disturbance rejection feedback (EDRF) embodiment is proposed to reject the unwanted yaw disturbance and stabilise the armoured vehicle. Besides, the proposed control strategy is also used to re-position the armoured vehicle back to its initial position. Therefore, a summation moment reference input is used to counter back the unwanted firing moment occurred due to gun firing impulse at CG of the armoured vehicle. The armoured vehicle is evaluated via simulation analysis in term of yaw rate, yaw angle, vehicle sideslip angle, lateral acceleration and lateral displacement. Significant improvements up to 75% have been achieved by using the proposed control strategy of AFWS system to reject the external disturbance due to the firing force.

  • Analysis of boost conversion process for a thermoelectric module
    • Authors: Jason S.T. Sim, Rozli Zulkifli, Shahrir Abdullah, Zambri Harun
      Pages: 144 - 150
      Abstract: Thermoelectric modules are a useful way to extract waste energy from a readily available low quality heat source. However, the voltage generated by these modules varies with the temperature difference across its surfaces which are prone to fluctuations. Furthermore, the amount of voltage generated by individual modules is low. This can be rectified using voltage converters to stabilise the output voltage at the expense of some efficiency. In the case where a minimal number of modules are being used, a boost converter can be used to increase the input voltage from the thermoelectric modules to a higher level. Our previous study showed the results of the boost conversion process for multiple temperature differences, resulting in multiple input voltages and currents and found that the conversion efficiency increases with increasing input voltage at an almost constant input current. In this paper, we compare the experimental results for conversion efficiency against the expected values provided by the manufacturer, and find that when the input voltage is closer to the desired output voltage, the conversion efficiency increases.

  • Tremor suppression for 4-DOFs biodynamic hand model using genetic
           algorithm

      Abstract: A person who has severe hand tremor will have difficulty in doing specific tasks such as eating, combing or holding any objects. Currently, there is no medication that can cure the tremor. Thus, this study proposes the active tremor control, in which an intelligent controller is applied to suppress the hand tremor. The main objective is to optimise the proportional-integral (PI) controller using genetic algorithm (GA). A linear voice coil actuator (LVCA) is applied onto a four degree of freedom (4-DOF) human hand model represented in state space. The findings of the study demonstrate that the PI controller optimised by GA gives excellent performance in reducing the tremor error. Based on the frequency evaluation, the PI controller performance was roughly around 84% in reducing the peak of simulated hand tremor. The outcomes provide an important contribution towards achieving novel methods in suppressing hand tremor model by means of intelligent control.

  • Driving pattern analysis of hybrid and electric vehicles in a German
           conurbation including a drive system evaluation
    • Authors: Sarah Tewiele, Mira Schüller, Martin Koppers, Dieter Schramm
      Pages: 158 - 164
      Abstract: The official vehicle consumption data given by the vehicle manufacturer are in many countries based on standardised test cycles such as the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). In reality, vehicle consumption normally differs depending on the individual usage profile. However, the knowledge of realistic consumption patterns plays an important role especially in the case of electric vehicles due to the range reduction due to energy consumption. This paper gives an overview of the typical usage profiles of electric and hybrid cars based on real driving data, which was recorded within a German conurbation. Based on these recorded driving profiles in combination with appropriate vehicle simulation models realistic consumption patterns and ranges are generated. Effects of different charging scenarios and various battery sizes are discussed. Finally, the suitability and efficiency of conventional cars as well as battery electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles for the regarded driving profiles are compared and evaluated.

  • Modelling and control of piezoelectric actuators by a class of
           differential equations-based hysteresis models
    • Authors: Mohd Hanif Mohd Ramli, Xinkai Chen
      Pages: 165 - 173
      Abstract: Hysteresis is a fundamental problem in most smart material-based actuators. This phenomenon limits the performance of systems driven by these actuators. This paper presents a control fusion strategy for hysteretic piezoelectric-based actuators which are described by Bouc-Wen model. A discrete prescribed performance control algorithm is developed and fused into the BW model. To verify the effectiveness of the modelling and control methods, experiments are made on a commercial piezoelectric actuator product. It is shown that the proposed controller guarantees not only the asymptotic stability but also transient performance.

  • Super-twisting sliding mode controller with fuzzy logic based moving
           sliding surface for electronic throttle control
    • Authors: Mohd Hanif Mohd Ramli, Xinkai Chen
      Pages: 174 - 182
      Abstract: In this paper, a super-twisting sliding mode controller with a moving sliding surface is proposed for electronic throttle control. The idea behind this control algorithm is to utilise a fuzzy logic controller to vary the sliding surface based on error and rate of change of error. The simulation results have confirmed the improved dynamic performance of the proposed control algorithm in terms of faster response compared with super-twisting sliding mode controller with a fixed sliding surface. The improvement in the dynamic performance is achieved without compromising the stability, robustness and tracking accuracy.

  • Active suspension control with state estimation using finite Markov chains
    • Authors: Mohd Hanif Mohd Ramli, Xinkai Chen
      Pages: 183 - 192
      Abstract: State estimation and optimal control of a nonlinear stochastic MacPherson suspension system using finite state and action Markov chains is considered. A system model and optimal controller are iteratively constructed based on k-means clustering of closed loop data and re-discretisation of the continuous system state space. Bayesian estimation of measured and unmeasured states using a cell filter is considered, and the unscented Kalman filter is considered as an alternative implementation. The main contribution is the introduction of the finite state and action Markov chains to the optimal control design and state estimation in active suspension systems. The application for active suspension control is illustrated and discussed via simulations using a simplified nonlinear model of a MacPherson system including stochastic road and measurement noise.
