Dry Clutch Control for Automated Manual Transmission Vehiclesanalyses the control of a part of the powertrain which has a key role in ride comfort during standing-start and gear-shifting manoeuvres. The mechanical conception of the various elements in the driveline has long since been optimised so this book takes a more holistic system-oriented view of the problem featuring: a comprehensive description of the driveline elements and their operation paying particular attention to the clutch, a nonlinear model of the driveline for simulation and a simplified model for control design, with a standing-start driver automaton for closed loop simulation, a detailed analysis of the engagement operation and the related comfort criteria, different control schemes aiming at meeting these criteria, friction coefficient and unknown input clutch torque observers, practical implementation issues and solutions based on experience of implementing optimal engagement strategies on two Renault prototypes.... clutch activation systems, clutch-by-wire and automated manual transmission or dualclutch transmission systems. This book, based on the research work done in collaboration between the automotive constructor Renault S.A. and the ... clutch position but for the very last part of the engagement and in the case of a fully automatic engagement scheme. Finally, experimental results based on a Clio II 1.5dCi prototype equipped with a five-speed Renault AMT JH gearbox are presented.
