The future of clutch technology

Simulations

Open loop step response

A plot of the simulated open loop step response
The system oscillates in the beginning and has a very high overshoot.

Closed loop pulse response

Plot of a simulated pulse response.
The graph shows a pulse response from the simulated system. The pulse starts when the decoupling of the clutch is requested, it ends when the clutch should be coupled again.

Measurements

Open loop step response

Plot of multiple open loop steps on the rig.
The graph shows that the system do not go to the same position with the same input at different times. It will not go back to the zero position after a step.

Closed loop step response

Plot of a closed loop step response that do not meet the requirements.
The system do not meet the requirements of the project. Further iteration is needed to achieve them. This step response is done without a feed forward controller.
