“Virtual Engine/Powertrain/Vehicle” Simulation Tool Solves Complex Interacting System Issues 2003-01-0372

An integrated simulation tool has been developed, which is applicable to a wide range of design issues. A key feature introduced for the first time by this new tool is that it is truly a single code, with identical handling of engine, powertrain, vehicle, hydraulics, electrical, thermal and control elements. Further, it contains multiple levels of engine models, so that the user can select the appropriate level for the time scale of the problem (e.g. real-time operation).
One possible example of such a combined simulation is the present study of engine block vibration in the mounts. The simulation involved a fully coupled model of performance, thermodynamics and combustion, with the dynamics of the cranktrain, engine block and the driveline. It demonstrated the effect of combustion irregularity on engine shaking in the mounts. It was shown that the irregular cylinder pressure produces low frequencies, which have the undesirable effect of coupling into and inducing resonance of the mount natural frequencies.
