Influence of System Dynamics in Brake Blending Strategies for Electric Vehicles

Regenerative and friction braking blending strategies need to consider both system dynamics in order to optimize their performance. Usually, the priority in electric vehicles is battery regeneration through electric braking instead of friction braking. This work studies the dynamics of both systems and proposes an optimized brake-blending strategy. The goal is to maximize regeneration without affecting safety. Both dynamics are studied separately with commercial systems: electric drivetrain and friction brake-by-wire. The proposed strategy takes into account temporary response as well as the physical limitations of the systems. Therefore, this strategy limits the influence of the slowest system, in our case, the electric one, during the braking process while maximizing battery regeneration.
