Control of a Traction/Charging Structure for a Hybrid Electric Vehicle

Abstract : The electrification of the transportation is one of the relevant solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Indeed, new European standards impose increasingly restrictive limits on CO2 emissions per km. This is an important industrial issue for automobile manufacturers. Therefore, the industries are moving towards hybrid and electric vehicles in which an electric traction chain is present. This consists of an electrical machine, powered by a static power electronic converter connected to an electrical energy source and storage elements. For more than two decades, different topologies have been studied for electric traction and several solutions have been marketed. These products are increasingly light, reliable and efficient while respecting the constraints of the automobile manufacturers on the costs. This thesis focuses on improving the reliability of electromechanical energy conversion chains. The objective of the thesis is to continue the development of new actuator control laws ensuring better reliability of the traction chain. With this in mind, reducing the number of sensors in control of the conversion chain will be considered. In fact, there are already current sensors in traction chains. However, these generate significant additional costs because of their frequent failures and the need for replacement. Thus, current sensorless control of the AC drive systems allows the elimination of the sensors of the stator of the machine and therefore to avoid their cost. In this thesis, the model-free adaptive controller (MFAC) is presented to be used in the control of the conversion chain to reduce the number of sensors. In this regard, MFAC is used in two different approaches. First, it is used for controlling a WRSM system, with and without additional current sensors. Then, it is used for the control of the power converters used in the conversion chain. The experimental results, obtained on a test bench built in the laboratory, are conclusive in transient and steady-state: the unmeasured currents are converged with a satisfying precision for an automotive application and allow performing a current sensorless control of the machine. In addition, a satisfactory performance of MFAC is also obtained for controlling the power converters with only using one voltage sensor.
