Characterization and Modelling of Mounts for Electric Powertrains

The topic of this paper is to deal with the filtering of medium and high frequency excitations generated by electrified powertrains. It is now recognized that the whining noise generated by the electromagnetic forces and/or the meshing process of the transmission can propagate to the car-body through the rubber mounts. In the design phase, the prediction of the structure borne contribution requires a good knowledge of the dynamic behavior of the rubber mounts. The main issue is the stiffness of the mounts which cannot be modeled as pure springs. In fact, the dynamic behavior of a mount is governed by the material rheology and its internal resonances. The work presented in this paper proposes a simulation workflow for the rubber mounts dynamic model and a methodology for the dynamic stiffness measurement including the sensitivity with the preload and with the amplitude of the excitation. Finally, experimental and digital data are compared to assess the simulation method.
