Torque Model with Fast and Slow Temperature Dynamics of a Slipping Dry Clutch

The transmitted torque in a slipping dry clutch is studied in experiments with a heavy duty truck. It is shown that the torque characteristic has little or no dependence on slip speed, but that there are two dynamic effects that make the torque vary up to 900 Nm for the same clutch actuator position. Material expansion with temperature can explain both phenomena and a dynamic clutch temperature model with two different time constants is developed. The dynamic model is validated in experiments, with an error of only 3% of the maximum engine torque, and is shown to improve the behavior significantly compared to a static model.
