Uses and Examples of SystemModeler

Driveline: Analyze a Drive Cycle

A model of a vehicle driveline can be used to evaluate performance measures. This example explores how the transmission control unit parameters affect fuel consumption.

To run this example, you'll need

SystemModeler 3 and Mathematica 8 or 9.
