The Optimal Control of the Vehicular Powertrain with a Continuously Variable Transmission 973281

The cruise control as one of promising vehicle active control has been receiving a considerable attention in recent years, so the related problems are discussed in this paper. Mathematical model of the engine under the steady state and general dynamics equation of the Continuously Variable Transmission(CVT) are given, the regulating principle of the operating state of the engine is analyzed, and the conjugate gradient method employed to solve the optimal control problem of the vehicle in the cruise control is described, so the operating state of the engine could be controlled. At end of paper, some results are provided to verify the approach based on the vehicular powertrain with a hydromechanical CVT.
