Off-Highway Power Transmission Systems 630322

Modern off-highway vehicles must perform efficiently and reliably under heavy duty conditions. This requires mechanisms that can move and handle material faster and at lower cost. This means bigger powerplants and high capacity power shifted transmissions. The transmission system is critically important to total vehicle performance, reliability, and cost of operation. This paper reviews the various transmissions available and reports the development and experience of the LeTourneau electric drive design.
