Torque Converter Clutch Control using H∞ Loop Shaping 2009-01-0954
The development of a robust feedback slip controller for a torque converter clutch (TCC) is presented in this paper. The dynamic behavior of the TCC is modeled utilizing the principles of input-output system identification. An H∞ loop shaping controller design technique is applied in order to ensure robust stability against unmodeled system dynamics and large variations in system parameters. Road driving tests indicate that the control system achieves high levels of reliability and stability.
