Development of a flexible test platform utilizing gearbox simulators through programming
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
A gearbox simulator is developed as platform for testing and demonstrating purposes. For that, a rig composed by a mechanical system and electronic equipment for controlling two servomotors is used. The objective of this equipment is to simulate the forces that the gearbox would transmit to the gear lever when the gear change operation is being carried-out. To reach this goal, a program is developed in LabVIEW to command the servomotors, emulating the forces by controlling the output torque and transmitting them to the gear stick as it would be in a real gearbox, taking into account real force-angle curves. Also, a graphical user interface is developed in order to monitor the simulator performance ad ease the way the data is chosen and introduced into the software.As seen in the experiment results, the graphs present similarities in shape and magnitude, which is important in regards of feeling; a better performance could be reach suppressing some system constraints.
