Synchronization Assistance

Part of the Advances in Industrial Control book series (AIC)


The analysis of the passive means of improving the clutch comfort for an MT architecture has shown the need for introducing an element allowing for an active control of the clutch.

The paramount idea behind this chapter has its origin in the observation that the perceived clutch comfort is mainly affected by two elements: the total length of the engagement and the amplitude of the driveline oscillations following the synchronization. These two elements are physically interdependent: a shorter engagement time usually implies a higher oscillation level since the torque transmitted by the clutch must be increased.
