A Transmission System for Single-Shaft Gas Turbine Powered Trucks 730644

A transmission and energy storage and translation system concept is presented which allows a single-shaft turbine driven truck to have comparable performance to one powered with an internal combustion piston engine. The proposed system reduces the acceleration lag and stalling characteristics of a single-shaft turbine driven vehicle, while allowing a very wide torque range to improve the fuel economy of the engine.
