TRANSMISSION FOR ADVANCED AUTOMOTIVE SINGLE-SHAFT GAS TURBINE AND TURBO-RANKINE ENGINE

The purpose of this study was to assess, on both a performance and cost basis, the transmission most suitable for use with two types of advanced automotive engines designed to power a medium sized family car. As a result of considering eight different types of transmissions, a continuously variable ratio, power-splitting, hydromechanical transmission was selected as the best near-term transmission for application with the single-shaft gas-turbine and the turbo-Rankine engines. The best long-term candidate was determined to be the Traction-type transmission.
