Abstract

This paper develops a design of an automatic controller of clutch engagement and slip regulation for hybrid electrical vehicle (HEV) using fuzzy logic. The motivation for the use of fuzzy logic control in this study is its ability to handle the system based on uncertain and imprecise input information. Fuzzy logic can reduce the difficulty of mathematical modeling for complex system and can provide a smooth and fast clutch engagement. Fuzzy logic controller can be also used to reduce the vehicle vibration via regulating the slip between two clutch disks. Simulations for the new controller are conducted with Matlab Simulink. Results show that the system can achieve clutch engagement with low jerk and high comfort with considerable vibration reduction.
