Title
(EN) CLUTCH CONTROL METHOD AND CONTROLLER THEREFORE
(FR) PROCEDE DE COMMANDE D'EMBRAYAGE ET ORGANE DE COMMANDE ASSOCIE
Abstract
(EN)
A method for clutch (130) disengagement at idling running of a vehicle comprising an automated manual transmission is characterized in that a rate of said clutch (130) disengagement is controlled responsive to a brake pedal force applied to a brake pedal by a vehicle operator. A clutch (130) disengagement controller (C) controls a rate of clutch (130) disengagement at engine idling running mode. The clutch disengagement controller is connected to a brake pedal sensor (150) sensing a force applied to a brake pedal and to at least one air inlet valve (Vl; V2) controlling a position of a clutch cylinder (100). The controller (C) controls opening of said at least one air inlet valve (Vl; V2) responsive to the force sensed by said brake pedal sensor (150).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de désaccouplement d'embrayage (130) pendant la marche au ralenti d'un véhicule équipé d'une boîte de vitesses à commande automatisée. Le procédé est caractérisé en ce que la vitesse de désaccouplement de l'embrayage (130) est réglée en fonction de la force appliquée sur la pédale de frein par le conducteur. Un organe de commande (C) de désaccouplement d'embrayage (130) règle la vitesse de désaccouplement d'embrayage (130) quand le moteur est en mode marche au ralenti. L'organe de commande de désaccouplement d'embrayage est connecté à un capteur (150) de pédale de frein qui détecte la force appliquée sur la pédale de frein et sur au moins une vanne (Vl; V2) d'admission d'air réglant la position d'un cylindre de débrayage (100). L'organe de commande (C) règle l'ouverture de la ou des vanne(s) (Vl; V2) d'admission d'air en réponse à la force détectée par le capteur (150) de pédale de frein.
