1. 1. CVT Project MATT MYERS, DELANEY BALES, TAYLOR VANDENHOEK, ALEK LINQUIST, JESS MCCAFFERTY ME 416, FALL 2014
2. 2. Background CVT - Continuously Variable Transmission ◦ Transitions between an infinite number of gear ratios ◦ Primary pulley driven by engine RPM ◦ Secondary pulley driven by torque Baja Team runs a CVT to transfer power from the engine to the gearbox.
3. 3. How CVT Works http://grabcad.com/library/cvt-gearbox-1
4. 4. Purpose The CVT on the Cal Poly Baja car has several factors leading to inefficiencies and improper tuning. ◦ Last year we tried tuning the CVT with different weights. ◦ Placed 33rd in the Acceleration Event with 5.023 seconds ◦ 1st place had a time of 4.199 seconds CVT should be custom tailored for Baja Car. This model would be used by the Baja Club to predict CVT performance based on variable inputs.
5. 5. Goals Our goal as a group was to improve the efficiency of the CVT through theoretical modeling. ◦ Create dynamic model of CVT ◦ Determine most influential variables ◦ Determine the relationships between variables ◦ Reduce time to distance from 0-100 ft and 0-150 ft ◦ Improve acceleration time by 10%, from 5.023s to 4.58s, which would equal 5th place based on 2014 results.
6. 6. Baja Vehicle Performance Tractive Effort Curve ◦ Ideal Tractive Effort ◦ Actual Tractive Effort ◦ Road Load ◦ Traction Limit Ideal CVT Ratio MOTOR CVT GEARBOX CVJ TIRES η = 96% η = 98%10 HP η = 85% 3.5-0.9:1 6.25:1 Reff = 10in.

9. 9. Theoretical Model SolidWorks model of CVT primary pulley. Adams simulation of primary pulley to generate the pulley diameter as a function of time and belt tension. Simulink model to calculate time to distance of the vehicle. SolidWorks Adams Simulink
10. 10. Assumptions RPM increases steadily (no longer constant) Asphalt, no slip Ignore belt stretching Constant belt length and width Constant center-to-center distance between pulleys Constant effective vehicle mass
11. 11. SolidWorks CVT primary pulley Can control ramp angle, weight (material density or volume)
12. 12. Ramps 70 Degrees 68 Degrees [Flat] 66 Degrees Θ ΘΘ
13. 13. Weights Adjusted mass of 'weights' in Adams ◦ 50 grams ◦ 60 grams ◦ 70 grams ◦ 80 grams
14. 14. Adams Import SolidWorks model and run primary pulley to generate pulley diameter as a function of time and belt side pressure Can control: ◦ Belt Side Pressure ◦ Engine RPM ◦ Weights ◦ Spring Rate
