Analysis and Optimization of Clutch Actuator on Automated Manual Transmission System 2005-01-1782
This paper presents dynamic analysis, control simulation, and optimization for a clutch actuator on Automated Manual Transmission (AMT). The main object is to optimize a clutch actuator, both in mechanical component and control component, to be able to drive clutch faster and more stable. Using Matlab Simulink, both dynamic model and control model are integrated into a unit. According to the integrated model and using optimization technique, the clutch actuator is modified to capable of disengage/engage clutch faster and more stable in a real case. On the other hand, in order to obtain more information about the affection of clutch control while shifting, the dynamic model of powertrain from engine to vehicle loading is created in the Matlab Simulink program to perform a complete simulation from part control to vehicle dynamic.
