Transmission Efficiency CAE

 

Vehicle and powertrain manufacturers are increasingly focusing on improving the efficiency of the transmissions, in order to:

  • Meet regulations:  Vehicles have to meet stringent efficiency regulations which are continuously evolving.
  • Improve fuel economy:  Increasing the transmission efficiency by minimizing losses will result in maximum torque transmission.
  • Reduce packaging space: Improving the transmission efficiency will facilitate to use smaller transmission.

Key Challenge
There are several areas where the efficiency of the transmission can be improved including shaft deflection, lubrication, bearing selection and sealing losses. It is also a challenge to improve gear selection, gear geometry profile optimization to improve efficiency.

The Advantages

  • Meets regulations
  • Improves fuel economy
  • Reduces packaging space
