Abstract
The possibility to enhance the stability and robustness of electrohydraulic brake (EHB) systems is considered a subject of great importance in the automotive field. In such a context, the present study focuses on an actuator with a four-way sliding valve and a hydraulic cylinder. A 4-order nonlinear mathematical model is introduced accordingly. Through the linearization of the feedback law of the high order EHB model, a sliding mode control method is proposed for the hydraulic pressure. The hydraulic pressure tracking controls are simulated and analyzed by MATLAB/Simulink soft considering separately different conditions, i.e., a sine wave, a square wave and a square wave with superimposed sine disturbance. The results show that the proposed strategy can track the target within 0.25 s, and the mean observed error is less than 1.2 bar. Moreover, with such a strategy, faster response and less overshoot are possible, which should be regarded as significant advantages.
