Modeling and Simulation of Electric-Hydraulic Clutch on Light Vehicle


Article Preview

With high efficiency, simple structure and low cost, Automatic Mechanical Transmission (AMT) is suitable for the development and application of light vehicles. The control of clutch is emphasized on in the shifting process. It is necessary to study the control of engagement speed. In this paper, the electric-hydraulic clutch applied on light vehicles is modeled and the engagement process of clutch during vehicle starting simulated. After analyzing the operation quality of clutch with different engagement speeds, the speed variable control strategy is proposed. According to the strategy, engagement speed changes with the development of different operating stages. At last, the simulation is carried out to verify the feasibility and superiority of this kind of strategy.
