Hybrid powertrains have been on the market for more than a decade and have become one of the most successful alternative powertrains available today. More than a million hybrids are sold globally per year, primarily in Japan and the US. Some OEMs estimate that up to 80% of their light-duty vehicles may require some level of hybridization to meet upcoming CAFE regulations in the United States. Hybrids are also starting to make inroads into markets in Europe, and have recently been introduced to Chinese and Indian markets, among others. Basic information on hybrids is scattered among information sources, and is often difficult to synthesize.

Training / Education Classroom Seminars
This seminar is designed to provide gear novices with a general understanding of gear nomenclature, geometry, and arrangements. Starting with the basic definition of gears, conjugate motion and the "Laws of Gearing", you will gain a solid understanding of gearing and the fundamentals of rotary motion transfer through gear-trains. Gear classifications, tooth forms and geometry, and very high-level application considerations, manufacturing processes, and inspection techniques will be covered. Attendees will receive a copy of the book, Gear Design Simplified, by Franklin D. Jones & Henry H. Ryffel.

An efficient, robust, and quiet running drivetrain is as essential to customer satisfaction as styling and interior creature comforts. In this seminar, you will be exposed to various methods that can be used to accomplish this goal. Designed to help you visualize both individual components and the entire drivetrain system - without reference to complicated equations - this seminar focuses on the terms, functions, nomenclature, operating characteristics and effect on vehicle performance for each of the drivetrain components.

Dimensional Variation Analysis (DVA) is a decision-making methodology for tolerance analysis, and is employed to evaluate assembly variations and identify problems in manufacturing assembly processes at early stages of design. In this study, the impact of component tolerances on manufacturing and assembly process variations is presented on a case study. The case study includes the alignment analysis between crankshaft and input shaft for clutch systems. The impact of component tolerances on axial alignment measurements in regard to these applications is discussed. The study shows that when combined with effective tolerance combinations, Variation Simulation Analysis (VSA) facilitate operational visibility; thus improve quality, reduce manufacturing cost, and enable reduction of production release time. The case study presents the impact of component tolerances at two levels: 1. Pre-Design, 2. Optimized Design

Improved economic growth and infrastructure in India has lead to new market trends for commercial vehicles. Customers now expect high levels of comfort from all tactile points in a truck cabin; the gearlever knob is frequently used and its reactions greatly influence how a driver perceives GSQ (gearshift quality) and thereby vehicle quality. The importance of the gear shift quality of manual transmissions has increased significantly over the past few years as the refinement of other vehicle systems has increased. In Gearbox, Synchroniser is the major component whose performance will affect the peak engagement force to a large extent. Synchroniser mechanism allows gear changing in a smooth way, noiseless and without vibrations, both for the durability of the transmission and comfort for the drivers.

Free-wheel mechanisms transmit rotary motion in only one direction. They are widely used, for example, in hydraulic transformers, pulsed continuous transmissions, inertial automatic torque transformers, electrical starters for motors, and metal- and wood-working drives. Unfortunately, existing free-wheel mechanisms are insufficiently reliable and durable and in many cases limit the reliability of the drive as a whole. Thus, the insufficient life of free-wheel mechanisms delays the use of inertial automatic continuous transmissions, which have many benefits over existing transmissions. In most known free-wheel mechanism, the whole torque is transmitted through locking elements such as balls, rollers, eccentric wheels, pawls, slide blocks, and wedges, whose operation at large loads may limit the life of the mechanism.

Lift axles increase the load capacity of a vehicle, allowing it to carry the extra load without the need for multiple vehicles, hence reducing operational costs. Furthermore, additional axles help to distribute the truck’s load across the road surface, reducing the chances of damage to the infrastructure. Lift axles can be raised when the vehicle has lighter load to save fuel and reduce wear and tear to the tires and axles. They can be deployed to improve traction especially in icy off-road applications. The main objective of this project was to assess the fuel-saving potential of lifting axles on unloaded semi-trailers. Part of the mandate was to identify and analyze regulations of various jurisdictions with respect to lift/loadable axles and studies leading to the setting up of these regulations. The SAE Fuel Consumption Test Procedures Type II (J1321) was used for fuel consumption track test evaluations.

Fuel economy is one of the major challenges for both on and off-road vehicles. Inefficient engine operation and loss of kinetic energy in the form of heat during braking are two of the major sources of wasted fuel energy. Rising energy costs, stringent emission norms and increased environmental awareness demand efficient drivetrain designs for the next generation of vehicles. This paper analyses three different types of powertrain concepts for efficient operation of a forklift truck. Starting from a conventional torque converter transmission, hydrostatic transmission and a hydraulic hybrid system (Eaton architecture) are compared for their performance. Eaton hydraulic hybrid system is seen to perform much better compared to other two configurations. Improved performance is attributed to efficient engine operation and regeneration of vehicle kinetic energy during braking.

The assessment of hybrid tractor architectures raises several questions such as the suitable amount of electrical power to install and how to design the hybrid drivetrain with respect to the tractor’s functionalities and requirements. For the medium term, it is expectable that tractors will provide around 100-150kW of electrical power. This electrical power will be used: to drive tractor internal consumers (fan, AC compressor…), to enable traction and to supply connected implements with electrical power. We assume that the apparition of the electrification and hybridization for agriculture machinery will follow two major phases; transitory phase and final phase. We focus this work on the transitory. During a transitory phase, the mechanical power take-off (PTO) and hydraulic supply for the implement will coexist with an electrical power supply. In this work, we have identified possible tractor hybrid architectures based on parallel and series configurations.

Starting with a look at the transmission's primary function -- to couple the engine to the driveline and provide torque ratios between the two -- this updated and expanded seminar covers the latest transmission systems designed to achieve the most efficient engine operation. Current designs, the components and sub-systems used, their functional modes, how they operate, and the inter-relationships will be discussed. A manual transmission display will be used to explain ratios and how they function within the driveline.

Managing uncertainty - no one knows what the future holds. Despite our best efforts to prepare for the unknown, the future often plays out in unexpected ways. The success of an organization often comes down to its ability to anticipate change; Ford's in house futurist will share tips on how to expect the unexpected.
