IMPACT OF PARAMETERS OF POWER TRANSMISSION SYSTEM STATE ON VEHICLE’S WORKING LIFE AND POWER EFFICIENCY
This paper deals with a change of states of power transmission system elements up to the achievement of boundary conditions based on a material fatigue. Depending on the level of change in states of elements, an estimation of a remaining working life of a power transmission system was given. Additionally, an estimation of a change of conditions of power transmission system elements , as well as the impact of states of elements on a power efficiency of a vehicle are presented . Besides an analytical consideration, the simulation models were created and the results of simulations presented.
