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. Attendees will receive an introduction to the various components of the drivetrain, including the clutch or torque converter, manual or automatic transmission, driveshaft, axle, wheel ends, and brakes. This course also provides insight into: the structure and function of each component; vehicle integration; and related noise, vibration and harshness issues. You will be equipped to evaluate the space requirements, mounting needs, clearances required, and effect on vehicle response for each component.

GKN Driveline has launched a unique transmission for hybrid vehicles. Developed in Japan, the transmission works in combination with an electric motor, generator and internal combustion engine to deliver greatly improved fuel efficiency, high performance and flexibility. The powertrain can switch from: - Pure EV with a top speed of 120kph to - Series Hybrid, supported by the ICE via Generator when SOC is below 30% and - Parallel Hybrid with direct ICE support on the front for best efficiency and maximum performance This flexibility provides unmatched performance with a range of 900km and a fuel consumption of as low as 123.9mpg(1,9l/100km). The Multi-Mode eTransmission is driving the front wheels and combines ICE, Generator and electric Motor in a way to provide either EV, parallel ore serial hybrid mode with smooth, comfortable transition, fully transparent to the driver. The layout combines an electric motor, a generator and ICE powertrain in one transmission. Key elements of the transmission are the hydraulic clutch system to connect/disconnect smoothly the ICE to the front wheels, and the advanced gear design to achieve high efficiency and near-silent running.

In order to improve fuel economy to meet future regulatory standards, many new features must be added to vehicle powertrains. One of these is Stop/Start (micro hybrid) technology; allowing engine stop when operation is not necessary such as idling during traffic stops. Stop/Start technology allows auto manufactures to meet increasingly difficult fuel economy standards. In automatic transmission vehicles, the transmission must remain able to quickly engage gear in order to allow quick response on engine restart.

Global OEMs face increasing regulatory requirements to reduce CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. One of the key technologies to enable meeting these requirements are engine stop-start systems, which can typically achieve a 2 to 4% fuel consumption benefit. As a result, stop-start systems are having significant growth with sales projected to reach 50 million units/year by the end of this decade.

The European and Chinese passenger car markets are seeing the continued growth of the dual clutch transmission (DCT) which can be well understood against the background of its advantages. These include improved fuel economy, acceleration, shift quality, and compatibility with diesel engine use and electric drive motors. As an alternative to manual transmissions, the platform sharing provided offers favourable manufacturing opportunities where they are based on manual transmission architecture. The same fluid cannot be used in both applications however. The industry expects the DCT penetration to increase over time as roads become more congested and driving becomes more of an effort due to the increased driver frequency of declutching, handshift, clutching episodes. This change in transmission choice globally will be influenced by the important factors of fuel economy, durability, and driving quality, which will be enhanced - in some cases solved - by the lubricant fluid technology. There are significant fluid and additive design challenges to be overcome for the DCT.

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.

A comprehensive and practical understanding of planetary gear trains is critical for individuals involved with the design and development of automatic transmissions. A key component of the automatic transmission system, the planetary gear train is able to deliver reliable gains in power, durability, higher torque-to-weight ratios, and configuration flexibility. This two-day seminar will provide participants an advanced and comprehensive presentation on the topics of planetary gear train design, development, and applications for automatic transmissions. The instructor will guide participants through an increasingly complex set of topics including planetary gear train requirements, case study, and future trends in advanced transmission design and development.

The planetary gear train is a core component of the automatic transmission system. The ability of the planetary gear train to deliver reliable gains in power, durability, higher torque-to-weight ratios, and configuration flexibility has enabled this gear set to become a key component of the automotive powertrain. A fundamental understanding of planetary gear trains is critical for individuals working in the automotive and industrial transmission fields. In this introductory one-day seminar on the basic principles of the planetary gear train, the instructor will guide participants through the basic structure and the various types of planetary gear trains. In addition, participants will be introduced to ratio calculation methods, gear train arrangements and power flow, component life estimation, and related NVH issues. Together, the principles and practices presented in this seminar will provide participants a fundamental and practical understanding of this important technology.

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. Automatic transmission design will illustrate the concept of automatic control and hydro-mechanic decision theory and implementation. Attendees will have the opportunity to supplement these theoretical concepts with practical, "hands-on" experience using the various transmission models and components provided. Mechatronics, toroidal transmission functions, and the future of the automatic transmission will also be discussed. Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) systems, which represent a fundamental shift in the way power is transmitted from the primary source to the remainder of the driveline will be the focus of in-depth coverage on the third day of this seminar.
