Dynamic Analysis of Transmission Torque Utilizing the Lever Analogy 2009-01-1137

This paper presents methods for analyzing and visualizing the relationship between input torque, clutch torque, output torque and input acceleration during the inertia phase of a shift. The methods presented are an expansion of the lever analogy [1]. The methods are useful for understanding how geartrain inertia affects control, both its magnitude and distribution. Clutch energy and shift speeds are also easy to calculate and understand using the tools presented. Lastly the methods show why the optimum control strategies for various transmission configurations (such as DCT's, planetary transmissions, etc.) are different in the inertia phase.
