The Coronel Effect Positively Infinitely Variable Transmission 2004-40-0051

The operation theory and implementation in a prototype of the Coronel Positively Infinitely Variable Transmission ("CEPIVT") is reported. The CEPIVT, through U.S. Patent 5,716,652, introduces the "Coronel Effect" gearset, with a single first gear engaging with a independently driven second gear. By changing the angle of rotation of the first gear the angular velocity of the second gear is changed. This change in angular velocity will form a resultant velocity between the two gears causing the receiving gear to produce a true, all geared, bi-directional, variable transmission. Implementation of this concept in the prototype is presented through a report of construction.
