A New Control Scheme for Automated Manual Transmission with Electromagnetic Powder Clutch 2015-24-2547
This study aims to provide modeling and control approaches for automated manual passenger and commercial vehicle transmissions in order to improve the overall disengagement-gear shifting-engagement performance using electromagnetic powder clutch (EMPC). The rationale behind selecting this clutch is its rapid behavior.
During the modeling procedure of the EMPC, the analogy between this type of clutches and dry plate friction clutches has been exploited and a simple control method is proposed.
The study also includes modeling method for gear shifting and selecting mechanisms of the automated manual transmission gearbox as well as development and implementation of controllers which is designed for these mechanisms. Automated manual transmission gearbox is utilized due to its combination of ease of construction and ability for electronic automation.
