Bond Graph Modeling of Automotive Transmissions and Drivelines

Proc. of 7th Vienna International Conference on Mathematical Modelling (MATHMOD), Vienna, Austria, 2012.
The paper presents an overview of the bond graph models of advanced automotive transmission and driveline systems. This includes one-mode and two-mode series-parallel hybrid electric vehicle transmissions, a continuous variable transmission, active-limited slip and torque vectoring differentials in 2WD and 4WD configurations, and electromechanical actuator-based wet and dry clutch actuation systems. It is illustrated that the bond graph method can be effectively used to gain valuable insights about the system dynamics structure and behavior.
