This Study was performed during the winter of 2014 at Revi Winter Track in Arjeplog, Sweden on Snow & Ice. The thesis describes how to optimize the intervention of an Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system for a sports car. The problem with VDC today is that it is very often defensively programmed and affects the feel when the car is driven, the intervention of VDC in this case is known as unwanted VDC intervention. What to be researched in this thesis is if an optimization of the program can be done that allows greater body slip without affecting the vehicle dynamics and stability in a negative way. Stability control system (SCS) simulation method which is the combination of virtual plus physical world is most suitable for testing and optimization of active stability control systems like VDC. Optimization and tuning procedure for mitigating the unwanted intervention of the control system during handling manoeuvre test has been achieved through SCS simulation. Field test procedures and results for SUV are described. The field test results are used to validate a simulation model which is then analyzed under severe maneuvering conditions to shed light on dynamic stability issues.
