This paper describes a mathematical model and presents the dynamic analysis of a series-hybrid tracked tank driven by two electric motors, one devoted to propulsion (PM) and the other to steering (SM). A double differential mechanism is adopted to electrically produce the speed difference between the tracks required for skid steering.

The EMT model supports the steering motor control strategy definition and the electric motor size optimisation.

Abstract

This paper describes a mathematical model and presents the dynamic analysis of a series-hybrid tracked tank driven by two electric motors, one devoted to propulsion (PM) and the other to steering (SM). A double differential mechanism is adopted to electrically produce the speed difference between the tracks required for skid steering. In this paper, this specific transmission is called Electro-Mechanical Transmission (EMT). The EMT model supports the steering motor control strategy definition and the electric motor size optimisation. Dynamic simulations applied to a 55 ton main battle tank are shown and discussed to validate the obtained results.
