FUNDAMENTALS OF MODERN VEHICLE
TRANSMISSION SYSTEMS

            - Three Day Professional Development Seminar


TOPICS

  • Overview of mechanical power transmission in a passenger vehicle and light truck: manual transmission; automatic transmission; continuously variable transmission (CVT)
  • Theory, function and operation of manual transmission
  • Vehicle powertrain requirements and specifications assessment, shift strategy analysis and control Ssystem implementation
  • Functionality of torque converter operation; gear systems; gear design considerations; type; layout; NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness); epicyclic powerflow, implementation of shift strategy through hydro-mechanical control systems
  • Functionality and characteristics of toroidal drive technology and CVT components, sub-systems
  • Future technologies: "manualized" automatics, automated manuals; DCT, SSCT, DSCT

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Explain the development, operational aspects and design principles of transmission systems
  • Describe the operational parameters and inter-relationships of each of the sub-systems
  • Apply basic design synthesis and analysis techniques for each major component and sub-system
  • Compare and contrast 'stepless' to 'stepped' transmission technology
  • Identify and describe the function and operation of all major components and sub-systems by participating in hands-on demonstrations
  • Recognize the limitations, technological trends, and potential new products under consideration
  • Summarize the direction of new passenger car transmission designs and systems
