WO/2017/029440 METHOD FOR CONTROLLING AN ELECTRIC OR HYBRID POWER TRAIN||WO||23.02.2017|
||PCT/FR2016/051784||RENAULT S.A.S||FONTVIEILLE, Laurent|
The present invention relates to a method (4) for controlling the power train of a vehicle (1), the power train being installed in the vehicle by means of suspensions (18) and comprising an electric motor (10) able to transmit a torque to the wheels (16) of the vehicle. The motor comprises a blocking finger (101) able to switch from an engaged configuration in which the rotor (102) of the motor is rigidly attached to the stator of the motor in order to ensure immobilisation of the vehicle, to a disengaged configuration where the rotor (102) is released from the stator in order to allow driving of the vehicle. The method includes a dynamic correction step of the speed of the motor, such that, on switching from the engaged configuration to the disengaged configuration of the locking finger when the vehicle is immobilised on a slope, the oscillations of the power train on the suspensions around the axles of the wheels are damped. Application: motor vehicle.
