  • Publication number: 20240170954
    Abstract: A motor control method for coupled an electronic vehicle is provided. The motor controller controls a motor and is powered by a battery. The motor control method includes: when a main relay of the motor controller suddenly breaks contact, in a first phase, feeding back a surge current into the battery to suppress the surge current by a diode and a first current limit resistor of a first protecting circuit of the motor controller; and, in a second phase, conducting a discharge switch of a second protecting circuit of the motor controller by a control unit of the motor controller, and releasing the surge current to a reference voltage range by the discharge switch and a second current limit resistor of the second protecting circuit.

  • Publication number: 20240151304
    Abstract: For a manual gearshift control of conventional vehicle transmission, a vehicle gearshift automatic control device including a first actuator module, a second actuator module and an electronic control unit, is provided in an add-on manner to retrofit the vehicle transmission with both automatic and manual gearshift functions. In an automatic gearshift mode, the electronic control unit executes the vehicle gearshift automatic control method and receives an automatic gearshift command to drive the first actuator module to push a shift lever to implement a lateral shift selection, or to drive the second actuator module to spin a park lever to implement a longitudinal gearshift. For vehicle security, whenever a vehicle gearshift automatic control device failure or a manual gearshift intervention is detected in the automatic gearshift mode, the electronic control unit shuts off the automatic gearshift mode and switches to a manual gearshift mode to perform the manual gearshift function.

  • Publication number: 20160161566
    Abstract: A method and a system are provided for online estimating internal resistance of battery. The system includes: a high-voltage battery pack for providing high-voltage DC power, a voltage detection unit for detecting the total voltage of the high-voltage battery pack, a current detection unit for detecting the total current of the high-voltage battery pack, a secondary battery for providing low-voltage DC power, a DC/DC conversion unit for conversing the high voltage DC power to a low voltage DC power and transferring the latter to the secondary battery, a drive unit for driving the vehicle, an on-board charging unit for charging high-voltage battery pack, and a control unit. The control unit controls the system to measure information of a constant current and a corresponded voltage difference of the battery pack at the moment the constant current happened before and after, and then to calculate internal resistance of the battery pack.

  • Patent number: 9027679
    Abstract: A series-parallel coupling control method and system for a hybrid driver are suitable for a hybrid power vehicle. The hybrid driver is used to produce a driving force to drive a load. The hybrid driver includes a first power generation unit, a second power generation unit, and a main controller. The main controller selectively controls the system to drive the load in a series power coupling mode or a parallel power coupling mode. The main controller switches between the series coupling mode and the parallel coupling mode by using rotation speed compensation or torque/power compensation. Therefore, the driven load will not suffer from sudden thrust or jerk.
