What is a Dual-clutch Transmission?

1 minuteread

Dual-Clutch Transmission:

Dual Clutch Transmission is additionally sometimes referred to as a direct-shift gearbox or powershift gearbox. It seeks to mix the benefits of a standard manual shift with the qualities of a contemporary transmission by providing different clutches for odd and even speed selector gears. When changing gear, the engine torque is transferred from one gear to the opposite continuously, so providing gentle, smooth gear changes without either losing power or jerking the vehicle. Gear selection is also manual, automatic (depending on throttle/speed sensors), or a ‘sports’ version combining both options.

A dual-clutch transmission, alternately, uses two sets of internals, each with its clutch, so a “gearchange” actually only consists of 1 clutch engaging because the other disengages—providing a supposedly “seamless” shift with no break in (or jarring reuptake of) power transmission. Each clutch’s attached shaft carries 1/2 the whole input gear complement (with a shared output shaft), including synchronized dog clutch systems that pre-select which of its set of ratios is presumably needed at the following shift, under command of a computerized system.
