The issue of stability control is one of the most important features of today’s modern car. A control method was proposed to increase the stability of a hybrid vehicle with two independent motors on front and rear axle. This control method controls the torque of each wheel based on yaw rate, slip ratio, and lateral acceleration to prevent the vehicle deviation. Different structures are used for hybrid vehicle and the structure used in this article is a series one. To examine the performance of the proposed method, simulations were performed in MATLAB/SIMULINK software environment with Carsim software. The results of the simulations indicated that the proposed control method was capable of controlling the stability of the vehicle on slippery roads, so that it prevented the wheels from slipping and locking.
