European engineers discuss recent advances in powertrain technology, as well as the design and control issues encountered in advanced automobile powertrains. Originally written for the Network in Powertrain Systems and Driveline Technology seminar, the eight contributions address topics including control of an integrated IVT powertrain; driveability control of the ZI powertrain; performance of integrated engine-CVT control; cylinder balancing control of direct- injection engines; continuously variable transmission of electromechanical power splitting; and the design of a parallel hybrid transmission control system. Of likely interest to engineers and researchers working on powertrains, fuel, control technologies or emissions, and related matters, as well as to vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, and consultants.
