Heat Loss Modeling
The components used to model this drivetrain have optional heat ports. To model the dissipated power of the drivetrain, these heat ports need to be enabled and connected to the environment via a convection element.
The enabled heat ports are shown as red squares, and their link to the convection element as red connection lines. The components that have heat ports, and therefore contribute to drivetrain heat loss in this model, are the gears, clutches, dampers, springs, brakes, and bearing friction.
How Much Heat Is Generated?
To see how much heat is generated in the drivetrain model, simulate and plot the convection flow versus time.
The cumulative heat flow from all heat‐generating components in the drivetrain.
The individual components' contributions to heat loss.
