VHDL-AMS Based Genetic Optimization of Mixed-Physical-Domain Systems in Automotive Applications

Leran Wang, Tom J. Kazmierski
2009 Simulation (San Diego, Calif.)  
In this optimization technique, VHDL-AMS is used not only for the modeling and simulation of the FLC and its underlying AASS but also for the implementation of a parallel genetic algorithm (GA).  ...  Results show that the proposed FLC has superior performance to that of existing FLCs that use fixed-shape membership functions.  ...  It consists of a DC motor, some mechanical parts (gear train and rack) and a hydraulic vibration absorber ( Figure 3 ).  ...
