Bond Graph Modeling and Analysis of Active Differential Kinematics

2008 ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Conference, Ann Arbor, MI, 2008.
This paper describes the kinematic structures of Active Limited Slip Differential (ALSD) and different concepts of Torque Vectoring Differentials (TVD) (superposition clutch concept, stationary clutch concept, and 4WD concept). The bond graph method is used to derive the models of ALSD/TVD kinematics. Based on the developed models, a comparative analysis of active differential operating modes and performance is conducted.
