Low frequency longitudinal vibrations resulting from driver throttle inputs are a common problem in modern passenger cars. This phenomenon, which is commonly referred to as shuffle or shunt, is due to sudden changes in the engine torque exciting torsional oscillations in the driveline.
This paper presents a dynamic model of a vehicle driveline for the optimization of low frequency torsional vibration. The model used is first validated against experimental tests. Parameter sensitivity studies have been carried out using the model to identify the important components affecting shuffle. Three key parameters have been chosen from the parameter study.
To optimize these key factors, Genetic Algorithms (GAs) have been used in this multi-parameter optimization problem. The results obtained from GAs have been compared with the calculus based optimization techniques.
