Abstract:   (3517 Views)
the primary objective of this work is to introduce a gear ratio selection strategy for a CVT equipped vehicle and show its effectiveness on the fuel consumption reduction. AFuzzy control algorithm is designed for this purpose. Anonlinear model is developed for simulating the longitudinal vehicle dynamics with accelerator pedal applied by the driver as an input. In order that pedal input values can be used for evaluation of control strategy, a pedal cycle concept was introduced. With the help of these cycles different driving conditions were simulated and the fuel consumption results were obtained using Advisor software. Results showed that the control system was successful in reducing the fuel consumption, especially in low acceleration driving cycles
