By combining high-efficiency contra-rotating propellers called the Suzuki Dual Prop System and a compact 2-Stage Gear Reduction, it was able to realise high propulsion power which enabled it to be installed onto a heavy boat as a result of a large reduction gear ratio. With the use of regular petrol as its fuel, it can be offered to customers in more countries and regions, as well as a wider range of usage from business to leisure.
Most of these studies are focused on different features of multi-gear concept such as performances of EVs in different driving conditions, gear ratio optimization and shift scheduling techniques, transmission loss estimation, etc.
With the update of the wider overall ratio spread, the new 10-speed transmission enables a lower numerical top gear ratio -- an attribute that reduces engine speed on the highway.
Toyota chief engineer, Tatsuro Ueda, said, 'Instead of the first gear ratio with a CVT, we use a direct gear drive train as a first gear.
Now, high-speed reels of yesteryear lacked the torque to separate fish from cover, but today's models, like Monroe's Daiwa Tatulas and other reputable brands, offer reasonably high gear ratio with the best of both worlds.
where: [chi](s) is output angle or transmission function; P = [+ or -][r.sub.3]/[r.sub.5] is gear ratio; [phi](s),[psi](s) is transmission functions of the base four-bar linkage.
The gearbox output speed can be calculated from vehicle speed as in (1), and the gear ratio can be calculated by dividing engine speed by gearbox output speed as in (2).
Energy efficient, the unit blends the motor and gearbox elements, so the gear ratio slips far into the motor housing.
I received a field-test sample of this reel with 9.0:1 gear ratio the following spring and marveled at its applications, including reeling fast over dead-looking water to make another cast, "waking" a double-bladed spinnerbait over shallow cover, and catching up with a bass that ate a jig, then swam directly toward the boat.
an efficiency-priority driver, and describe design specifications such as different g levels, gear ratio, power rating, weight of the IWM, clutch shift point, efficiency, 0-60 acceleration time etc.
Available in direct or overdrive configurations, the new mDRIVE HD 13-speed offers a low reduction gear ratio designed for easier starting on steep grades or when the truck is under heavy load.
