Séminaire: Minh C. Ta

E2SD Master Unit
« Sustainable Development Applications »

Le professeur Minh C. Ta du Center for Technology Innovation (CTI) de la Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), Vietnam, donnera un séminaire dans le cadre du master E2SD. Le séminaire aura lieu le lundi 28 novembre 2016 de 14h à 16h, dans l’amphi Turing du bâtiment M3 de l’université Lille 1 à Villeneuve d’Ascq.

Sustainable development on Motor Control and Motion Control of Electric Vehicles


One of the most distinguishing advantages of EVs resides in the fact that we can control the torque of Electrical Machines much more quickly than that developed by the Interior Combustible Engines (ICE) in conventional cars. By control the electric motor drive properly, we can develop the required traction force precisely, and increase the safety and comfort simultaneously. The history of EV is dated back to 19th century with alternative bright and grey periods. With the development of Power Electronics, DSP/microcontroller-based Control Technology, Information Technology, Energy Storage… EVs have become the “reality” since the beginning of 2000s and expected to be the main transport means in very near future. In the 1st part of the seminar, the control principle of different types of motors will be reviewed. Emphasis will be given to Vector Control (or Field-oriented Control FOC) of Interior Permanent Magnet (IPM) motors. Several advanced control techniques will be presented in comparison with conventional PID control. In the 2nd part of the seminar, various aspects and techniques on motion control of EV will be addressed, such as Anti-skid control, Direct yaw moment control, Braking control. Modelling of EV is very important issue. The model of the electrical drive (motor and inverter) for motor control, the model of whole vehicle for motion control and for power flow optimization control will be carried out in each part of seminar, accordingly. In the 3rd part, prospective and future trends on control of EV (Autonomous control, Wireless charging on running, etc.) will be introduced. The results of the State-funded EV project, conducted at Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Vietnam will be given in the last part of the seminar, as a show-case on control of EV.
