Asymetric modelling and control of an electronic throttle
Rights accessOpen Access
This paper presents an improved model for an automotive electronic throttle inspired on the behavior observed in real-time experiments. Due to a number of issues, particularly the return-spring, the performance of the throttle valve depends on whether it is opening or closing. This asymmetric behavior was taken into account to design a mathematical model of the throttle body and to derive a nonlinear asymmetric PI controller. The experimental demonstration suggests that considering an asymmetric term dramatically improves the performance of the controller
