We have added a model based on CVT ratio vs engine RPM lookup table. In case, you are having issues in tuning the model please reach out to us at

This has been a massive help but the information was rushed towards the end. The part regarding the closed-loop CVT, that is not clear properly. Can you please explain in detail because I am having issues while running the closed-loop model.

Fortunately, we have recently come up with a video on "Modeling of a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) BAJA All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV)" where you can see how we have modeled the ATV using the dyno test engine data. Here is the link:
