Title: (DE) KRAFTÜBERTRAGUNGSVORRICHTUNG FÜR EIN HYBRIDFAHRZEUG MIT VIERRADANTRIEB
(EN) POWER TRANSMISSION DEVICE FOR FOUR-WHEEL-DRIVE HYBRID VEHICLE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE TRANSMISSION DE PUISSANCE POUR VÉHICULE HYBRIDE À QUATRE ROUES MOTRICES
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A power transmission apparatus (11) for four-wheel-drive hybrid vehicle according to the present invention is characterized in that it comprises a front-wheel/rear-wheel driving-force distributor means (21) for distributing rotary powers, which are output from an internal combustion engine (31) as well as a rotary electric appliance (32), between front wheels (91) and rear wheels (93), and then transmitting the rotary powers to them; wherein the front-wheel/rear-wheel driving-force distributor means (21) sets up the following when braking a vehicle: a rear-wheel disconnection mode for disconnecting between the front-wheel/rear-wheel driving-force distributor means (21) and the rear wheels (93); a front-wheel connection mode for connecting between the front-wheel/rear-wheel driving-force distributor means (21) and the front wheels (91); and a regeneration mode for regenerating the rotary powers from the front wheels (91) by the rotary electric appliance (32).
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de transmission de puissance (11) pour véhicule hybride à quatre roues motrices comprenant un moyen de répartition (21) de la force motrice sur les roues avant/arrière qui répartit et transmet aux roues avant (91) et roues arrière (93) la puissance de rotation qui est issue d'un moteur à combustion interne (31) et d'une machine tournante électrique (32). Au moment du freinage du véhicule, le moyen de répartition (21) de la force motrice sur les roues avant/arrière crée: un état de déconnexion des roues arrière dans lequel le moyen de répartition (21) de la force motrice sur les roues avant/arrière est déconnecté des roues arrière (93); un état de connexion des roues avant dans lequel le moyen de répartition (21) de la force motrice sur les roues avant/arrière est relié aux roues avant (91); un état de récupération dans lequel la puissance de rotation provenant des roues avant (91) est récupérée par la machine tournante électrique (32).
