Torque interruption and shift jerk are the two main issues that occur during the gear-shifting process of electric-driven mechanical transmission. Herein, a time-optimal coordination control strategy between the the drive motor and the shift motor is proposed to eliminate the impacts between the sleeve and the gear ring. To determine the optimal control law, first, a gear-shifting dynamic model is constructed to capture the drive motor and shift motor dynamics. Next, the time-optimal dual synchronization control for the drive motor and the time-optimal position control for the shift motor are designed. Moreover, a switched control for the shift motor between a bang-off-bang control and a receding horizon control (RHC) law is derived to match the time-optimal dual synchronization control strategy of the drive motor. Finally, two case studies are conducted to validate the bang-off-bang control and RHC. In addition, the method to obtain the appropriate parameters of the drive motor and shift motor is analyzed according to the coordination control method.
