  • Publication number: 20140321941
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device for introducing force into a component of fiber composite material by means of a screw connection having a bolt-like connecting element arranged in a passage of the component. The invention is based in particular on the problem of improving the durability of the screw connection on the component of fiber composite material. The object is achieved in that the screw connection has a two-part bush (6) which borders the passage (2) of the component (1) and accommodates the connecting element (9), wherein the first and the second bush part (6.1, 6.2) of the bush (6) are designed to engage in one another in axial extension, and each bush part (6.1, 6.2) has a radially extended union collar (15.1, 15.2) with a collar side (16.1, 16.2) facing the component (1), on which side a sliding surface is formed.

  • Patent number: 8862294
    Abstract: A method is described for operating a hybrid drive system which has a first drive unit, in particular an internal combustion engine, and a second drive unit, in particular an electric motor, which includes activating the first drive unit and the second drive unit in such a way that the first drive unit and the second drive unit each provide an output variable for the purpose of providing a total output variable; limiting the output variable provided by the first drive unit to a limiting value which is less than a maximum output variable which may be provided by the first drive unit; canceling the limitation if the output variable provided by the second drive unit corresponds to a maximum output variable which may be provided by the second drive unit.

  • Patent number: 8720619
    Abstract: In a method for operating a drive device of a hybrid vehicle, in particular a hybrid motor vehicle, having at least one internal combustion engine and at least one electric machine, the torques of the internal combustion engine and the electric machine are added. A torque/torque component which, with respect to a request, is not deliverable by the internal combustion engine because of the system-related inertia of the internal combustion engine, is compensated at least partially by a torque/torque component delivered by the electric machine.

  • Publication number: 20130307577
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for detecting a malfunction of an electric machine, a first variable (isq) influencing the torque (M) of the electric machine (1) being modulated. In order to reliably detect the malfunction of an electric machine and to prevent an associated unwanted torque or power output of the electric machine, a second variable (?p) influencing the torque of the electric machine is modulated, the two variables (?p, isq) influencing the torque (M) cancelling each other out, when the electric machine functions properly, with respect to their effect onto a parameter of the electric machine (1), especially a torque (M), a speed, an electric parameter and/or a magnetic parameter, while it is concluded that there is a malfunction in the event of the lack of such a cancellation.

  • Publication number: 20130311034
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for monitoring the proper functioning of at least one first and a second component (109, 110) of a vehicle drive train (100). The first and the second component (109, 110) each have an effect on the torque applied to the driveshaft (111) and are controlled for this purpose by a test signal (112, 113). The test signals (112, 113) are predetermined such that the effects of the first and the second component (109, 110) onto the torque applied to the driveshaft (111) cancel each other out if the first and the second component (109, 110) function properly. When the components (109, 110) function properly, the traveling comfort is not disturbed by an unexpected torque increase or torque decrease during the carrying out of this method. Any perturbation of the vehicle drive train (100) is therefore also avoided.
