The ultimate aim of the work described here is to consider the design of a controller, for an integrated powertrain, directed at reducing emissions during the full transient range of operating conditions. In order to optimise the controller, it is necessary to have an accurate representation of the powertrain. A modular simulation of the system has been produced and validated against experimental data from a test vehicle. This paper describes the process of modelling the system and discusses the validation of the computer models against the experimental data. The simulation includes models of a Ford, 1.8IDI TCi Diesel engine, CTX continuously variable transmission with hydraulic controller and Orion car. It has been used to predict transient powertrain and vehicle behaviour.
