Geared Hydrostatic CVT is a breakthrough drivetrain technology, now patented and ready for licensing.
The HCVT has a simple but clever concept that can deliver almost unlimited torque with a minimum of parts. These benefits transcend all known CVT limitations and are much more economical.
Geared HCVT is not limited to the passenger car market, but has a much broader application area.
Thanks to the innovative technology, this next-generation transmission can also be used in pumps, generators, snowmobiles, lifts, heavy trucks, trains, construction machinery, boats and ships, wind turbines etcetera.
This HCVT can easily be used to limit the starting current of electric motors, for example in electric cars.
The benefits of the technology compared to push-belt CVTs.
The patent describes four variants of the Hydrostatic Continues Variable Transmission, which uses a variable displacement pump and a hydraulic motor to convert speed and torque. Due to the friction principle, the torque of these CVTs is limited to 400 Newton metres.
Suitable for all motorised applications
The HCVT is not limited to the passenger car market, but can also be used in areas as diverse as pumps and generators, snowmobiles, elevators, windmills, heavy trucks, trains, construction machines and even boats and ships.
The American government has expressed the wish to limit the fuel consumption of cars to 4,3 litres per 100 km by 2025. In addition to the previously mentioned benefits of Geared HCVT, this breakthrough can also contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions. Not only is Geared an alternative in the area of gearboxes, but it is also a serious competitor to present CVTs thanks to its high transmission ratio, limited parts and larger scope of application.
