Abstract
An electrical variable transmission (EVT) is an electromagnetic device with dual mechanical and electrical ports. In hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), it is used to split the power to the wheels in a part coming from the combustion engine and a part exchanged with the battery. The most important feature is that the power splitting is done in an electromagnetic way. This has the advantage over mechanical power splitting devices of reduced maintenance, high efficiency, and inherent overload protection. This paper gives a conceptual framework on how the torque on both rotors of the EVT can be simultaneously controlled by using a field-oriented control (FOC) scheme. It describes an induction-machine-based EVT model in which no permanent magnets are required, based on classical machine theory. By use of a predictive current controller to track the calculated current reference values, a fast and accurate torque control can be achieved. By selecting an appropriate value for the flux coupled with the squirrel-cage interrotor, the torque can be controlled in various operating points of power split, generation, and pure electric mode. The conclusions are supported by simulations and transient finite-element calculations.
