The series-wound, high-speed motor and 3-stage planetary geartrain provide fast line speed and smooth, reliable operation.
In general, pulsation in the torque input from the engine resulting from cylinder firing imposes a cyclical variation of the speed on the rotating components in the geartrain, the amplitude of which depends on the magnitude of the cyclical engine torque component, the isolation provided by the input damper and other compliances, and the rotating inertias in the system.
The proposed generic model is not only compatible with all kinds of geartrain but can also be used for Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT), thus enabling power consumption comparisons between different transmission configurations.
