On the Feasibility of Independently Controllable Transmissions
AbstractThe present research is carried out to determine whether the independently controllable transmission (ICTs) are able to transmit the energy/power from the arbitrary variable speed input shaft to the variable or constant speed of the output shaft, independent of each other and without a control system. For this purpose, the novel ICT proposed in this study has the required features and is simpler than those proposed so far. However, this ICT and any other proposed ICT, while being feasible from a kinematic point of view, results in the conclusion that the transmissions are practically inapplicable, as will be demonstrated from the detailed power flow analysis carried out and presented in this paper. This is because either one shaft, the so called “free shaft”, has variable uncontrollable speed, or a couple of the shafts have powers close to zero. View Full-Text
