Lecture - Sliding Mode Control in Automotive Application

Lecture by Dr. Vadim Utkin, The Ohio State University

Interest to Sliding Mode Control is explained by the robustness with respect to plant parameter variations and disturbances. On the other hand sliding motions enable decoupling the overall motion into independent partial components of lower dimensions. Due to these properties the sliding mode control methods are efficient tool to control high order nonlinear dynamic systems operating under uncertainty conditions. The design principles of the sliding mode control will be surveyed briefly. Sliding mode control with discontinuous control actions may be implemented easily using electronic power converters with on-off admissible operation mode only. Applications of sliding mode control are demonstrated for Automotive Alternator, Air/Fuel Ratio Control, Actuator of Camless Engine.
