What is a Continuously Variable Transmission?

1 minuteread

Continuously Variable Transmission:

The continuously variable transmission (CVT) is a transmission during which the ratio of the rotational speeds of two shafts, because the input shaft and output shaft of a vehicle or other machine, maybe varied continuously within a given range, providing an infinite number of possible ratios. The CVT allows the motive force or a computer to pick the link between the speed of the engine and also the speed of the wheels within endless range. This may provide even better fuel economy if the engine constantly runs at one speed. The transmission is, in theory, capable of higher user experience, without the increase and fall within the speed of an engine, and also the jerk felt when changing gears poorly.

CVTs are increasingly found on small cars and particularly high-gas-mileage or hybrid vehicles. On these platforms, the torque is proscribed because the electric motor can provide torque without changing the speed of the engine. By leaving the engine running at the speed that generates the most effective ratio for the given operating conditions, overall mileage is often improved over a system with a smaller number of fixed gears, where the system is also operating at peak efficiency just for a tiny low range of speeds. CVTs are found in agricultural equipment; thanks to the high-torque nature of those vehicles, mechanical gears are integrated to produce tractive force at high speeds. The system is comparable to it a hydrostatic gearbox, and at ‘inching speeds’ relies entirely on a hydrostatic drive.
