An Electrohydraulic Pressure Compensation Control System for an Automotive Vane Pump Application
Keywords:Vane Pump, Electrohydraulic Pressure Compensation, Automotive Transmission Supply, PID Control, Nonlinear Control
Pressure compensated vane pumps are an excellent solution for supplying hydraulic power with minimal waste in many automotive applications. An electrohydraulic pressure compensation control system for an automatic transmission supply that promises improved pressure response times over the baseline architecture is discussed. Suggested valve specifications are determined through calculations based on available data and refined via a validated simulation model of the proposed system. Two controller designs are formulated and compared: a basic PI control law and a cascaded model following controller including a nonlinear feedback linearization component. Simulations of the proposed system for a given duty cycle reveal that the nonlinear controller provides only minor improvements over a basic PI control law and is thus not an economical solution.
