To realize power-on shifting without torque hole and maximize overall efficiency, a high-speed motor is adopted as the primary motor connecting to the multiple speed clutchless automated manual transmission and a low-speed high torque electric motor is employed as the assisting motor connected to the final shaft with fixed gear ratio. Motor torque and speed are controlled using improved model predictive flux control method in conjunction with synchronizer mechanism actuation to best fill the torque hole to improve both drivability and driving comfort. To evaluate the proposed system, a complete mathematical model is built and compared with a conventional single motor transmission system. The detailed transient dynamic results in terms of final shaft torque, acceleration and vehicle jerk demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed powertrain.
