Dual Clutch Transmission Model in Simulink

Model of a dual-clutch transmission with MATLAB scripts for optimizing the shift schedule.

File Information

This file contains a dual-clutch transmission model built using Simscape and SimDriveline that can be configured for control algorithm development or optimization tests. The clutch states and pre-selection of the gears via dog clutches is controlled by a state machine modeled in Stateflow. Model variants for the transmission and vehicle dynamics can be selected using configurable subsystems. MATLAB scripts demonstrate how to optimize a shift schedule for maximum fuel economy, and how to speed that process using parallel computing. This model can be configured for hardware-in-the-loop testing. A 3D animation of the transmission shows the rotating shafts and enabled clutches, indicating the flow of power.
Please read the README.txt file to get started.

To see the optimization tasks, watch this video (5 min):

To see the complete demonstration of model tuning, parameter sweeps, and optimization tasks, please watch the webinar, “Shift Schedule Optimization of a Dual-Clutch Transmission“.

Hi Chris -- do you have a license for the MathWorks product Model-Based Calibration Toolbox? That product is required for the data-driven model we have used. If you ">>which xregmaskinitialization -all" and get "xregmaskinitialization not found" then you don't have it. You could probably get a trial license of it from your sales rep.

This is a great model but whenever I change the Block choice of the Engine to 'Data Driven' I get the following error.

"Error in 'Dual_Clutch_Trans/Engine/Data Driven/MBC Engine Model From Dynamometer Data/MBC Brake Torque/xregtwostage/Local Model': Initialization commands cannot be evaluated.

Caused by:
Undefined function or variable 'xregmaskinitialization'."

Its a pity as I am building a diesel engine model and this would have been a great model to learn from.

Sorry, I've realized that we don't have xPCtarget ...

I've tried to run the simulation, but I get the following error:

Making simulation target "Dual_Clutch_Trans_sfun", ...

'Dual_Clutch_Trans_sfun.bat' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I'm running Matlab 64bits on Windows 7 with all the necessary toolboxes and compilers.
