Transmission control and thermal simulation model for CVT gasoline vehicles

Ver. 1.0.0 for R2021a
This model is a physical model of CVT gasoline vehicle. It simulates transmission control and thermal performance.
The powertrain consists of an engine (displacement 1.5 [L]), starter, alternator, transmission (CVT), differential, brakes, vehicle, and low-voltage battery.
The thermal system consists of a powertrain, oil, case, radiator, HVAC system, air conditioner, cabin, doors, glass, and water cooling circuit.
Input / output signals are connected as follows.
Control signals, environmental signals and test input signals are connected to the input ports.
Sensor signals and monitor signals are connected to the output ports.
There is no external connection to the physical conserving port.
