This paper shows the implementation of a gear model with losses, nonlinear elasticity and forcing errors in the Modelica language utilizing concept of replaceable functions. A case study about a torque-vectoring drive in a simplified vehicle model is carried out. Using the proposed gear model, the total vehicle model is analyzed in several detail stages reaching from rigid-perfect to a model using a nonlinear loss and nonlinear tooth stiffness.
