Modeling of a Dry Dual Clutch Utilizing a Lever- Based Electromechanical Actuator

ASME Journal of Dynamic Systems, Measurement, and Control, Vol. 138, No. 9, pp. 091012/1-11, 2016
The paper proposes a dynamic model of an automotive dry dual clutch system, which comprises submodels of a lever-based electromechanical actuator and a dual clutch assembly. The model is developed by using the bond graph approach, and it can be used for clutch design, analysis, and control tasks. Special attention is devoted to modeling of friction, compliance and lever geometry effects, as they are the ones that predominantly determine the accuracy of clutch static curve description and computational efficiency of the model. Several custom-designed test rigs are utilized for the purpose of collecting the experimental data needed for model parameterization and validation. Experimental validation demonstrates a good modeling accuracy for a wide range of operating parameters.
