Power Split Transmissions Versus Hydrostatic Multiple Motor Concepts - A Comparative Analysis 2004-01-2676
The aim of the presented study was to analyze the potentials of two different drive line concepts. The comparison is made for a simple Power Split Drive and a Hydrostatic Two-motor Transmission with a disconnectable hydromotor. The main focus is put on the achievable overall efficiency of both alternatives. The system complexity of the two compared transmissions is very different. The analysis therefore also looks towards this matter and further makes an assessment of the different control requirements.
