Optimization of Accessory Drive System of the V6 Engine Using Computer Simulation and Dynamic Measurements 2005-01-2458

At the initial accessory drive system design stage, a model was created using commercial CAE software to predict the dynamic response of the pulleys, tensioner motion and pulley slip. In a typical 6 cylinder automotive accessory drive systems, the first system torsional mode is near the engine idle speed. The combination of these two events could generate numerous undesirable noise and vibration effects in the system. Data acquisition on a firing engine with a powertrain dynamometer confirmed the computer model's results. Correlations are then developed and established based on results between the firing engine to the CAE model to increase confidence in the generated model. Further system optimization through design modifications are used to tune the system to minimize the overall system dynamics.
