Abstract

In this paper, an electronic differential is introduced for an electric vehicle (EV) with rear wheel drive and two electric motors. The proposed architecture consists of driving the two motors by simple motor torque controllers, through splitting the torque equally for each motor. The principle is similar to that of a mechanical differential. The purpose is the improvement of EV's drivetrain efficiency and therefore the vehicle's range. A 3 Degree of Freedom (DoF) model, including lateral and longitudinal weight shift and tyre dynamics is created. The aim is to study the effect of traction of each wheel in the vehicle dynamics and its cornering performance.
