Transmission Modeling and Simulation: Key to Reducing Power Loss


As automotive manufacturers strive to improve the fuel efficiency of their vehicles, much of the focus is on the engine as the primary source of power loss. However, there is as much loss through the transmission. Engineers are putting tremendous effort into determining exactly how much power is lost and what can be done to reduce losses and improve overall efficiency. As a result, the transmission industry is now actively involved in optimizing existing designs and exploring new system architectures.

Transmission modeling and simulation provide a means of reducing the number of physical prototypes that must be built during the design of a transmission. At a requirements level this translates into choosing the number and ratio of the gears that will be in a particular design, given a vehicle's target dynamic performance, production cost, and fuel economy.
