In recent years, the automotive engine strategies are forced on downsizing and down speeding to enhance fuel economy and reduce the emission. These make torque increase significantly in order to improve the vehicle performance, especially in diesel engines. At this time, the torsional damper performs the most important role in the driveline NVH of the manual transmission system. The clutch disk with torsional dampers is not easy to be applicable to the high torque of low speed RPM range. And DMF with sufficient isolation of vibrations of driving system includes disadvantages of the expensive cost, delayed response, and engine NVH aspect deteriorated due to increase of angular acceleration of engine. This paper presents that the Centrifugal Pendulum Absorber (CPA) is applied to maximize the isolation and to compensate for the disadvantages of DMF and SMF system. Furthermore, CPA was developed for the first time in the world on SMF clutch discs in manual transmission.
