Title (EN) A SYSTEM FOR POWERING ROTATING VEHICLE ACCESSORIES USING A TRANSMISSION
(FR) SYSTEME SERVANT A ENTRAINER LA ROTATION D'ACCESSOIRES DE VEHICULE AU MOYEN D'UNE TRANSMISSION
Abstract:
(EN) A system for powering various rotating vehicle accessories such as an alternator, a transmission fluid pump (18), a power steering pump (16), and an air-conditioning compressor (14) from the torque converter (27) of an automatic transmission. The system utilises the smooth speed characteristic of the automatic transmission torque converter (27) to achieve an equally smooth accessory drive ratio transition. The system may also be used to power the accessories using a manual transmission.
(FR) Système servant à entraîner différents accessoires rotatifs de véhicule, tels qu'un alternateur, une pompe de transmission hydraulique (18), une pompe de conduite assistée (16) et un compresseur de conditionnement d'air (14), à partir du convertisseur de couple (27) d'une transmission automatique. Ce système utilise la caractéristique de vitesse douce du convertisseur de couple (27) de la transmission automatique, afin de réaliser une transition de rapport de commande des accessoires également douce. On peut également utiliser ce système pour entraîner les accessoires au moyen d'une transmission manuelle.
