Infinitely Variable Transmission Utilizing Oscillating Torque 2005-01-1468

A unique infinitely variable transmission utilizing oscillating torque to transmit mechanical power will be presented. Modeling of the dynamics for an automotive application will demonstrate its high performance characteristics. Analysis indicates that the upper design load limit is nearly unlimited and mechanical efficiency exceeds 98% for most operational conditions, due to pure dynamic coupling and the small number of energy- dissipating components. The control system requires only minimal electrical components that integrate easily with internal combustion engines.
