Analysis and Development of Mechatronic Systems - New Approaches in Rotational and Torsional Vibration Analysis 2000-01-1333
Rotational analysis plays an important role in many automotive engineering areas, such as design and evaluation of drivelines, timing and auxiliary drives.
Previous developments have tended to focus on the analysis of the mechanical rotation system, with particular attention being paid to the dynamic behaviour of one or more rotating shafts and its elements.
The control of these mechanisms by electronic control systems has become increasingly more apparent in today's industry. This is especially the case for the camshaft of the combustion engine, as this is ‘phased’ for performance and emission purposes.
The approach introduced here enhances the classical methods of driveline rotational analysis, by integrating the control unit strategy as an additional point of interest.
This expands the analysis of the complete mechatronic system.
A broader perspective of the whole system is achieved, as a prerequisite for further design steps, covering not only the mechanical, but also the control functions.
Applying the arising international ASAM standards in system integration and information technology, a more integrated development methodology is implemented, also covering calibration tasks of the control system.
With this, direct design modifications of the control strategy are made possible, enhancing the analysis with design options.
