The electric variable transmission

  title={The electric variable transmission},
  author={M. J. Hoeijmakers and J. A. M. Ferreira},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications},
First, an electromechanical converter with two mechanical ports and one electrical port (consisting of two concentric machines and two inverters) is considered. This converter works as a continuously variable transmission between the mechanical ports and may, e.g., replace the clutch, gearbox, generator, and starter motor in a motor vehicle. The working principle of this converter is explained. Next, a new converter, the electric variable transmission (EVT), is presented. This converter has… CONTINUE READING
