CVT, Advancements in CVTs


The power losses during gear changes are a serious issue to be addressed in practical vehicles. Though only a small amount of power is lost for a given instance, it becomes a major factor when we move in depth into the efficiency part. An attempt has been made for the study of implementing CVTs for manual transmission and has been put forward. It has been proved lately, that the usage of a CVT or a continuously variable transmission reduces the losses to a considerable level by providing an infinite number of gear ratios unlike the stepped gears [8]. By merging the conventional manual gearshifting with the CVT principle, multiple gear ratios can be achieved and this optimizes the efficiency of power transmission. The study has been done based on the prevailing conventional gearboxes, their limitations and cons, and comparison of CVTs with them.
