Abstract: This paper discusses the application of Iterative Learning Control (ilc) algorithms for the engagement of wet clutches.
A two-level control scheme is presented, consisting of a high level ilc-type algorithm which iteratively updates parameterized
reference trajectories which are tracked by the low level tracking control. At this low level, two standard
ilc controllers are used to first track a pressure reference in the filling phase and afterwards a slip reference in the
slip phase of the clutch engagement. The performance and robustness of the presented approach are validated on an
experimental test setup. It is shown that both levels are crucial to achieve good engagement quality during normal
machine operation. Through the use of this ilc control scheme, it is possible to avoid time-consuming and cumbersome
experimental (re)calibrations, which are nowadays used to achieve and maintain good performance despite the
complex and time-varying dynamics of wet clutches.
