This two-day course will focus on developing more advanced vehicle driveline models. An overview of map based performance and fuel economy calculations will also be presented, but will not be the focus of the entire course. The following topics will be covered in this course:

Introductory Concepts of GT-SUITE :

  • 1-D Mechanical Simulation (including Torsional Vibration Analysis)
  • Model Setup- initialization, parameter sweeps, Optimization/Design of Experiments
  • Post-processing (GT-POST)
  • Subassemblies: internal, external, encryption of subassemblies
  • Compounds, user-created libraries, and model management
  • Automation of Vehicle Analysis with predefined test scenarios and report generation

The following vehicle modeling topics will also be included:

  • Hybrid Electric Features and Functions
    • Engine Start/Stop
    • Electric Launch and Assist
    • Regenerative Braking
    • Enhancing controls for smooth transitions between power sources
  • Detailed Transmission Modeling
    • Shift Strategy Generation
    • Automatic Transmission Power Flow Layout
    • Evaluating a shift event
  • Fast Running engine Models (FRMs)
    • Linking to Drivetrain Model
    • Transient run-up for damper evaluation

Considering the number of advanced topics, the time spent on each will be somewhat limited. If you are interested in focusing more time on a specific, topic, please inform the instructor. Based on feedback from the trainees, the instructor will dedicate more time and focus on the common topics of interest. If there are other topics not listed above that are of interest, please feel free to suggest them as well and they will be taken into consideration.
