Abstract:
Aiming at achieving the economy and safety of downhill brake process (running downward along a long slope at a constant velocity) of commercial vehicles, an integrated control strategy of the main brake system and auxiliary brake systems is proposed. Based on Electronic Controlled Braking System (EBS), the strategy distributes braking force to each brake system and each axle according to the thermodynamic feature of them and the wear loss of each brake lining, in order to achieve economy at the premise of safety. A simulation is conducted based on MATLAB/Simulink and TruckSim. Simulation results show that the strategy proposed could control the temperature of each brake system at a rational value, and the balanced wear loss of brake linings is facilitated, thus, the safety and economy of downhill brake is ensured.
