In order to essentially reduce heat generation and frictional dissipation carried by friction clutch engagement, conceptual design of clutched train combined with hydrostatic braking system is proposed as a novel substitution for vehicular friction clutch. Potential collateral merits of clutched train may improve service life and control accuracy since less friction heat generated during synchronization process. Parameter of clutched train is obtained by Genetic Algorithm optimization aiming at axial space-saving and light weight. Control-oriented model of proposed concept is derived and used in Model Reference Control development. Based on optimum parameter of clutched train, simulation result has shown the functionality of clutched train on vehicle standing-start, and well-behaved Model Reference Control on smoothing clutched train synchronization process.
