This work presents the development, validation and use of a SIMULINK integrated vehicle system simulation composed of engine, driveline and vehicle dynamics modules. The engine model links the appropriate number of single-cylinder modules, featuring thermodynamic models of the in-cylinder processes with transient capabilities to ensure high fidelity predictions. A detailed fuel injection control module is also included. The engine is coupled to the driveline, which consists of the torque converter, transmission, differential and prop shaft and drive shafts. An enhanced version of the point mass model is used to account for vehicle dynamics in the longitudinal and heave directions. A vehicle speed controller replaces the operator and allows the feed-forward simulation to follow a prescribed vehicle speed schedule. For the particular case reported here, the simulation is configured for the International 4700 series, Class VI, 4×2 delivery truck powered by a V8 turbocharged, intercooled diesel engine. The integrated vehicle simulation is validated against transient data measured on the proving ground. Comparisons of predicted and measured responses of engine and vehicle variables during vehicle acceleration from 0 to 60 mph and from 30 to 50 mph show very good agreement. The simulation is also used to study trade-offs involved in redesigning control strategies for improved performance of the vehicle system. Copyright © 2000 Society of Automotive Engineers, Inc.
