Continuously Variable Transmission
-To simplify "departure" calculations, we will consider the IVT case
(instead of CVT), because it allows continuous ratio variation from
-In both cases, all energy losses such as cluch transitions,
aerodynamics, etc, are neglected, and we consider the road is
-Torque/RPM curve is considered as horizontal line. The torque value
used corresponds to the value at the maximum power RPM.
-These calculations are described on the section "How
much doesCVT benefit?".
The manual transmission ratios correspond
to "output speed (wheels)" / "input speed (engine)". Thus the
differential ratio and tyre diameter are considered:
3-Output data: Acceleration Time to attain 100km/h:
Was at 100km/h on the gear #.
The CVT takes only%
of the time to accelerate to 100km/h, compared to the MT, (with same
car and engine).
Thus, the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is%
more performant than the Manual Transmission (MT).
