Simulations of Electric Vehicle Model for Insights into Pre-Planned Trajectory Profiles
Electric vehicles are slowly gaining its significance in the automobile sector due to stringent emission norms. This research article highlights the fundamental modeling steps required for an electric vehicle designing following a simulation approach using MATLAB/Simulink software. It gives a clear and concise way to interpret vehicle model from a simple to complex modelling approach. Unlike other research works, this paper helps to thoroughly perceive the fundamentals involved in modeling an electric vehicle with different trajectory profiles. The vehicle’s behavior when subjected to different external forces, steering characteristics under different path profiles are analyzed in a systematic way. This research work highlights the significance of identifying and solving issues faced in the safety sub-system of an EV.
