Measurement and Characterization of Electronically Controlled Driveline Clutch Systems
This SAE Recommended Practice covers the most common applications of electronically controlled on-demand clutch systems used in passenger (car and light truck) vehicle applications. This practice is applicable for torque modulation devices used in transfer cases, electronic limited slip differential (eLSD) cross-axle devices, rear drive module (RDM) integrated torque transfer devices with or without disconnect capability, and other related torque transfer devices.
To recommend test configuration parameters, procedures, and analysis techniques of electronically controlled active clutch system for measurement of specific performance characteristics. This revision has been made to clarify test method and update the process to reflect modern testing techniques.
