For anyone interested in the differences and nuances of hybrid and EV (Electric Vehicle) transmission systems, this course provides a solid, basic understanding. The material is tailored to expand your lexicon and comprehension of automotive transmission nomenclature by highlighting the differences and similarities. Whether it is a transaxle for a front-wheel drive EV or a combining–type drive system for a hybrid powertrain, this course covers all aspects that are shared with the more traditional stepped manual and automatic transmissions, as well as delve deeper into the differences. More specifically, we address one-speed transaxles (single and multi-step), multi-speed gearboxes, and combining power-split devices (i.e. eCVT, etc.). We explain the layout, operation and reasons to choose between the various technologies. Finally, we discuss power-flow, efficiency, design and manufacturing issues and touch on maintenance considerations.
By completing this course, you will be able to identify, recognize or articulate:
