Simulation modelling of the car brake vacuum booster and the main brake cylinder

M. V. Dyachuk, D. I. Petrenko, A. P. Dimihin


The questions connected with sim-physical modelling of the car brake vacuum booster and main brake cylinder are considered in the work. Models of the vacuum booster with a brake pedal and main brake cylinder, which are created with use of Simscape/Simulink simulation environment of programming language MATLAB are presented. Model testing results with two force change laws on a brake pedal are received: single and cyclic force action on a pedal.
