A Generic and Modular Modeling Approach for Automotive Drivetrains Using a Coordinate Partitioning Method

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Drivetrain models play an important role in state-of-The-Art automotive drivetrain and control concept development. Based on a proposed set of elementary drivetrain components, this article contributes a generic straightforward approach to compute state-space models for various geared drivetrain layouts, including complex hybrid multi-mode transmissions. The modular approach follows Lagrange formalism: The free motion of rigid shafts is subsequently constrained, considering connecting elements like spur and planetary gear sets. The generalized coordinates are determined by a coordinate partitioning method, ensuring a physically reasonable coordinate system. The proposed approach features high potential for automation. This enables drivetrain modeling by non-experts in the field of mechanical engineering.
