A Test Rig for Hydraulic Power Steering System Concept Evaluation using Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation
2013 (English)In: ICFP 2013, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper derives a test rig of a power steering system with purpose to investigate the performance of closed-centre valves as actuators in the steering system loop using hardware-in-the-loop simulation. Servo valves are used for independent control of each chamber pressure. The approach is to use a static model of the reference actuator and control the pressures with the servo valves accordingly. A simulation model of the system is used to verify the approach. Results from the test rig are presented from on-centre driving which show how the pressure is controlled satisfyingly.
