ASSADIAN, F., HANCOCK, M. and BEST, M.C., 2008. Development of a control algorithm for an active limited slip differential. IN: Proceedings of the 10th International Symposium on Advanced Vehicle Control (AVEC), Loughborough, UK, 22nd-26th August, pp. 55-60.
Mechanical limited slip differentials provide a low cost traction solution. However, their passive
nature means that they cannot adapt to different scenarios and their yaw moment generation
potential cannot be used for vehicle handling or stability control. Active limited slip differentials
are becoming popular as they are able to exploit this potential and also achieve a better traction
compromise due to their ability to adapt to different scenarios. This paper describes the
development of a control algorithm for an ALSD fitted to a RWD sports saloon vehicle.
