This file contains a dual-clutch transmission model built using Simscape and Simscape Driveline 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.
