INTRODUCTION CVT IS AN EMERGING AUTO MOTIVE TECHNOLOGY THAT OFFERS A CONTINUUM OF GEAR RATIOS BETWEEN HIGH AND LOW EXTREMS. inertia CVT wheel . TODAY CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE engine planetary set TRANSMISSION (CVT) HAVE LURED A GREAT DEAL OF AUTOMOTIVEMANUFACTURERS AND CUSTOMERS.

low overdrive . JAN NAUDE.IT WAS DESIGNED AND BUILT BY HUB VAN DOORNE. @80kph CVT WAS FIRST PATENTED IN EUROPE IN 19TH CENTURY THE FIRST PATENT FOR A CVT WAS FILED AT THE END OF THE CENTURY.HISTORY CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION(CVT) 4000 rpm DESIGN WAS DEVELOPED BY INVENTOR DR.

with the engine running continuously. .IN DOING SO ACTUALLY MAKES THE VEHICLE USABLE.  Vary the speed ratio between the engine and wheels.  Allow the vehicle to start from rest.NEED OF TRANSMISSION THE TRANSMISSION TAKES THE POWER FROM THE ENGINE TO THE WHEEL. Let the vehicle stop by disconnecting the drive when appropriate. low Transmit the drive torque to the required wheels. Allow this ratio to change when required.

How does cvt works? (CVT) offer a continuum of gear ratios between desired limits. CVT operates by varying the working diameters of the two main pulleys in the transmission or by changing belt thickness . Which allows the engine to operate more time in the optimum range given an appropriate control of the engine valve throttle opening (VTO) and transmission ratio.

CVT WORKING MODEL .

they must contact the driven disc near the center. resulting in a reduction in speed and an increase in torque (i. resulting in an increase in speed and a decrease in torque .CVT WORKING MODEL Another version of the CVT the toroidal CVT system replaces the belts and pulleys with discs and power rollers. Another disc connects to the drive shaft. This is equivalent to the driving pulley. all of the components are analogous to a belt-andpulley system and lead to the same results a continuously variable transmission. When the wheels are in contact with the driving disc near the center. This is equivalent to the driven pulley. When the wheels touch the driving disc near the rim. Although such a system seems drastically different.e. they must contact the driven disc near the rim. transmitting power from one disc to the other. Rollers.. located between the discs act like the belt. low gear). or wheels. One disc connects to the engine.

ADVANTAGES & DRAWBACKS CVTs have the potential to increase the overall vehicle efficiency and reduce the jerk CVTs can smoothly compensate for changing vehicle speeds. COST IS COMPARITIVELY HIGHER SIZE IS LARGER And RELATIVELY COMPLEX MECHANISM . allowing the engine speed to remain at its level of peak efficiency.

.CONCLUSION IT IS ADVANTAGEOUS TO USE A CVT INSTEAD A MANUAL TRANSMISSION. THIS IS MAINLY BECAUSE THE ENGINE WILL OPERATE ALWAYS ON THE OPTIMUM REGIMES AND THROTTLE-POSITIONS ADAPTED TO THE THROTTLEVARYING ROAD CONDITIONS AND POWER DEMANDS.
