Oil Temperature Classification Method for Hydraulic Electronically Controlled AWD System

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.25 No.1


A low computational complexity and high-accuracy method for clarification of oil temperature in a hydraulic electronically controlled rear differential was developed for implementation to a vehicle control unit. Because the target system uses a motor-driven electronic hydraulic pump to increase hydraulic pressure, a correlation was considered to exist between oil temperature and motor current. Theoretical analysis of the structure of the system demonstrated that a linear model was sufficient for clarification of the state of oil temperature from motor current, and a clarification model for the state of oil temperature using logistic regression was formulated. In addition, in order to balance accuracy and frequency of clarification, a method of calculation of posterior probability when continuous multiple clarifications were executed using only the output of the logistic regression model was developed. The results of application of the method to data obtained from the actual target system confirmed that the proposed method was able to clarify the state of oil temperature with a high degree of accuracy.
