It should be noted that the engine 4 may be disengaged from the first and second input shafts 11, 12 simultaneously.
[0031]
It is known to a person skilled in the art that the engagement between the engine 4 and the input shaft (s) is related to specific conditions of the power transmission system 100. The engagement between the engine 4 and the input shaft (s) will be described below in detail with reference to detailed embodiments.
[0032]
In some embodiments, the power transmission between the input shaft (s) and the output shaft (s) is achieved by shaft gear pairs. For example, each of the input shafts has a shaft driving gear provided thereon, each of the output shafts has a shaft driven gear provided thereon, so that a plurality of gear pairs with different velocity ratios are formed by meshes of corresponding shaft driving gears and shaft driven gears.
[0033]
In some embodiments, the transmission unit may be a six-speed transmission, i.e., the transmission unit may include a first-gear gear pair, a second-gear gear pair, a third-gear gear pair, a fourth-gear gear pair, a fifth-gear gear pair and a sixth-gear gear pair. There are no particular limits in the present disclosure, a person skilled in the art may increase or reduce the number of gear pairs accordingly based on transmission requirements, and the transmission unit may not be limited to the six-speed transmission as disclosed in the present embodiment.
[0034]
In some embodiments, as shown in, for example, Figs. 1-6, the motor power shaft 3 is configured to rotate together with one of the output shafts, such as the second output shaft 22. In some embodiments, when power (such as power transmitted to an output shaft from the engine 4) needs to be transmitted to the motor power shaft 3, the motor power shaft 3 can rotate together with the output shaft while receiving the power. In some embodiments, when power (such as power transmitted to the motor power shaft 3 from a first motor generator 51) needs to be transmitted to an output shaft, this output shaft can rotate together with the motor power shaft 3 while receiving power.
[0035]
In some specification of the present disclosure, the expression “rotate together with” means that related components (such as two components) may rotate together. In an embodiment that one component rotates together with the other one component, when the one component rotates, the other one component rotates together.

In the following description, the expression “rotate together with” may be understood as described above, unless specified or limited otherwise.
[0040]
In some embodiments, the first motor generator 51 may be configured to rotate together with the motor power shaft 3. For example, when functioning as a motor, the first motor generator 51 outputs the power to the motor power shaft 3. In some embodiments, when functioning as a generator, power from the motor power shaft 3 may be transmitted to the first motor generator 51, thereby driving the first motor generator 51 to generate electric power.
[0041]

In some embodiments, when the vehicle is in a parking state (e.g., the vehicle stops running but the engine is still working) and the motor power shaft 3 is rotating together with one of the input shafts, a part of power output by the engine 4 may be transmitted to the first motor generator 51 via the motor power shaft 3 such that the first motor generator 51 is driven to generate electric power, thus accomplishing a condition of charging the vehicle while parking (such as charging the vehicle while the vehicle is not running) .
[0044]
In some embodiments, the motor power shaft 3 may be a motor shaft of the first motor generator 51. In some embodiments, the motor power shaft 3 may be a shaft different from the motor shaft of the first motor generator 51.
[0045]
With the power transmission system 100 according to embodiments of the present disclosure, the number of charging modes of the vehicle can be increased. For example, the charging of a vehicle battery can take place either when the vehicle is running or when the vehicle is parked. Therefore, different charging modes can be provided, and charging efficiency can be improved.
[0046]
The detailed configuration of the transmission unit 101 may be described in detail below with reference to detailed embodiments as shown in Figs. 1-6.

In other words, as shown in Fig. 1, when the output unit synchronizer 221c is in a disengaged state, the output unit 221 and the second output shaft 22 may rotate at different speeds. When the output unit synchronizer 221c is in an engaged state, the output unit 221 may rotate together with the second output shaft 22.
[0052]
In some embodiments, the output unit 221 may be an output idler gear, and the output idler gear 221 may fit over one of the output shafts. The output idler gear 221 may mesh with the shift driven gear 74 of a main reducer.

The output unit 221 may fit over the second output shaft 22, and the fixed output gear 211 may be fixed on the first output shaft 21, which may not be construed as a limitation.
[0055]
The motor power shaft 3 may rotate together with one of the output shafts according to embodiments of the present disclosure will be described below with reference to Figs. 1-6.
[0056]
In some embodiments of the present disclosure, the motor power shaft 3 may rotate together with one of the output shafts via a gear pair. The gear mechanism has simple structure and is convenient for using in power transmission. In addition, with the gear mechanism, a required transmission ration may be obtained and the power transmission may be reliable. The gear pair may include two meshed gears, a generator gear 73 and a motor power shaft gear 31.
[0057]
In some embodiments, the generator gear 73 may be fixed on one of the output shafts. In other words, the generator gear 73 is fixed on an output shaft. The output shaft and the output unit 221 may rotate at different speeds or rotate together with each other. In some embodiments, the generator gear 73 may be fixed on the second output shaft 22 without particular limits in the present disclosure. The motor power shaft gear 31 may be disposed on the motor power shaft 3, and the motor power shaft gear 31 may configure to mesh with the generator gear 73. In other words, power may transmit from the motor power shaft gear 31 to the generator gear 73.
[0058]
A reverse unit of the power transmission system 100 according to embodiments of the present disclosure may be described below in detail.
[0059]
In some embodiments, the reverse unit includes a reverse output gear 72 and a reverse idler gear. The reverse output gear 72 may configure to rotate together or disengage from one of the shift driving gear, such as a shift driving gear 2a. In some embodiments, the reverse output gear 72 may rotate together with the shift driving gear, the power generated by the engine 4 and/or the power generated by the first motor generator 51may transmit to the reverse output gear 72. In some embodiments, the reverse output gear 72 may disengage from the shift driving gear, and power may not transmit to the reverse output gear 72.
[0060]
In some embodiments, the reverse output gear 72 may selectively rotate together with the shift driving gear via reverse idler gears, such as a first reverse idler gear 711, a second reverse idler gear 712 and a third reverse idler gear 713.
[0061]
In the present embodiments, the reverse idler gear may configure to rotate together with one of the shift driven gears and the reverse output gear may selectively rotate together with the reverse idler gear. In other words, in some embodiments, the reverse output gear 72 may rotate together with the reverse idler gear, the power generated by the engine 4 and/or the power generated by the first motor generator 51 may transmit to the reverse output gear 72. In some embodiments, the reverse output gear 72 may disengage from the reverse idler gear, and power may not transmit to the reverse output gear 72.
[0062]
In some embodiments, the reverse output gear 72 may synchronize with the reverse idler gear via the reverse synchronizer 72c. In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the reverse output gear 72 may configure to rotate together with the reverse idler gear via a synchronization of the reverse synchronizer 72. In some embodiments, the reverse output gear 72 and the reverse idler gear may rotate at different speeds when the reverse synchronizer 72c is in a disengaged state.
[0063]
In some embodiments, the reverse synchronizer 72c and the output unit synchronizer 221c may share a shift fork mechanism. The reverse synchronizer 72c may synchronize the reverse output gear 72 with the reverse idler gear. At the same time, the output unit synchronizer 221c is in a disengaged state. The output unit synchronizer 221c may synchronize the output unit 21 with one of the output shafts. At the same time, the reverse synchronizer 72c is in a disengaged state. In some embodiments, as shown in Fig. 1, the engaging sleeve of the reverse synchronizer 72c may move to the right to engage with the third reverse idler gear 713, and the output unit synchronizer 221c is in a disengaged state. In some embodiments, the engaging sleeve of the output unit synchronizer 221c may move to the left to engage with the output unit 221, the reverse synchronizer 72c is in a disengaged state.
[0064]
Therefore, both of the synchronization of the reverse synchronizer 72 and the output unit synchronizer 221c can be controlled by one shift fork mechanism. The number of the shift fork mechanisms can be saved and the power transmission system 100 can have a more compact structure, a smaller axial and diametric size, more convenient to arrange on vehicles.
[0065]
In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 1-5, the reverse idler gear may include the first reverse idler gear 711, the second reverse idler gear 712 and the third reverse idler gear 713. Specially, the first reverse idler gear 711 may configure to mesh with one of the shift driving gears, such as the second-gear shift driving gear 2a. The first reverse idler gear 711 may rotate together with the second reverse idler gear 712 in the same direction and the same velocity. The second reverse idler gear 712 may rotate together with the third reverse idle gear 713, and the reverse synchronizer 72c may configure to selectively synchronize the reverse output gear 72 with the third reverse idler gear 713.
[0066]

The reverse synchronizer 72c may be disposed on the reverse output gear 72 and to engage with the third reverse idler gear 713 or the reverse synchronizer 72c may be disposed on the third reverse idler gear 713 and to engage with the reverse output gear 72. In some embodiments of the present disclosure, as shown in Figs. 1-5, both of the reverse output gear 72 and the third reverse idler gear 713 are fitted over the motor power shaft 3, such that the reverse shaft can be saved and the transmission unit 101 can have a more compact structure. In some embodiments, the reverse synchronizer 72c may be disposed on the reverse output gear 72 to engage with the third reverse idler gear 713, which may not be construed as a limitation.
[0067]
In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 1-6, the first reverse idler gear 711 and the second reverse idler gear 712 may form an integrated structure so as to be a joint gear structure, such that the axial size of the first reverse idler gear 711 and the second idler gear 712 may be reduced and arranged on vehicles more conveniently.
[0068]
The input shaft (s) , the output shaft (s) , the shift driving gears and the shift driven gears of the power transmission system 100 will be described below with reference to embodiments shown in Figs. 1-6.
[0069]

[0076]
As the shift driven gear is fitted over the corresponding output shaft, a synchronizer is provided to synchronize the shift driven gear and the corresponding output shaft, thus achieving the object of power transmission.

[0083]
In some embodiments of the present disclosure, the engine 4 may transmit power to, or disengage from, the first input shaft 11 and the second input shaft 12 via a dual clutch 2d.
[0084]
In some embodiments of the present disclosure, as shown in Figs. 1-5, the dual clutch 2d includes an input terminal 23d, a first output terminal 21d and a second output terminal 22d. The engine 4 is connected with the input terminal 23d of the dual clutch 2d. In some embodiments, the engine 4 is connected with the input terminal 23d by at least one selected from a group consisting of a flywheel, a damper, a torsional disk, etc.
[0085]
In some embodiments, the first output terminal 21d is connected with the first input shaft 11, such that the first output terminal 21d may rotate together with the first input shaft 11. In some embodiments, the second output terminal 22d is connected with the second input shaft 12, such that the second output terminal 22d may rotate together with the second input shaft 12.
[0086]
In some embodiments, the input terminal 23d may include a shell of the dual clutch 2d, and each of the first output terminal 21d and the second output terminal 22d may include one driven disk of the dual clutch 2d. In some embodiments, the shell is disengaged from the driven disk, i.e., the input terminal 23d is disengaged from the first output terminal 21d and is disengaged from the second output terminal 22d. When the shell is to be engaged with one driven disk, the shell can be controlled to engage with a corresponding driven disk, thus the shell and this driven disk may rotate together. In the present embodiment, the input terminal 23d may engage with one of the first output terminal 21d and the second output terminal 22d to transmit power from the input terminal 23d to one of the first output terminal 21d and the second output terminal 22d, to output the transmitted power.
[0087]
In some embodiments, the shell may be engaged with two driven disks simultaneously. In the present embodiment, the input terminal 23d is engaged with both the first output terminal 21d and the second output terminal 22d, and thereby power from the input terminal 23d may be transmitted to the first output terminal 21d and the second output terminal 22d so as to be output.
[0088]
A person with ordinary skill in the art will appreciate that the engaging state of the dual clutch 2d may be controlled according to practical condition, and that the engaging state may also be adjusted accordingly based on a current transmission mode. In some embodiments, the input terminal 23d may disengage from the two output terminals including, for example, the first output terminal 21d and the second output terminal 22d. In some embodiments, the input terminal 23d may engage with at least one of the two output terminals including, for example, the first output terminal 21d and the second output terminal 22d.
[0089]
In some embodiments, the power transmission system 100 further includes three power output shafts, i.e. a first output shaft 21, a second output shaft 22, and a motor power shaft 3. These power output shafts, a differential 75, and relationships therebetween may be described below in detail with reference to Figs. 1-5.
[0090]
In some embodiments, the differential 75 may be disposed between a pair of front wheels 76 of the vehicle. In some embodiments, the differential 75 may be disposed between a pair of rear wheels 77 of the vehicle. The differential 75 may drive the wheels to the left or to the right when the vehicle is turning or running on a rough road, such that the wheels may roll with different angular speeds, and therefore driving wheels at both sides of the vehicle may perform only rolling on the ground. In some embodiments, a shift driven gear 74 of a main reducer may be disposed on the differential 75, for example, the shift driven gear 74 may be disposed on a shell of the differential 75. In some embodiments, the shift driven gear 74 may be a bevel gear, which may not be construed as a limitation.
[0091]
In some embodiments, as mentioned above, the fixed output gear 211 and the output unit 221, i.e., the output idler gear 221, may output the power transmitted to the output shafts, such that both of the fixed output gear 211 and the output unit may mesh with the shift driven gear of a main reducer.
[0092]
In some embodiments, as the output reverse output gear 72 may output the reverse power, the reverse output gear 72 may mesh with the shift driven gear 74.
[0093]
The power transmission system 100 according to embodiments of the present disclosure may be used in various different conditions, such as a parking-charging condition (for example, charging the vehicle while the vehicle is parking) , a running-charging condition (for example, charging the vehicle while the vehicle is running and both clutch parts of dual clutch 2d are engaged) , and the reverse mode.
[0094]
In the parking-charging condition, the engine 4 is configured to generate power and output the power to the first motor generator 51 via the generator gear 73 and the motor power shaft gear 31, thereby driving the first motor generator 51 to generate electric power.
[0095]
In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 1-5, in the parking-charging state, the engine 4 generates power and transmits the power to the second output shaft 22 via the first input shaft 11, one component of the fifth-gear gear pair and the second input shaft 12 therebetween and the six-gear gear pair sequentially. The first motor generator 51 may be driven to generate electric power as a generator by the power generated by the engine 4 transmitted by the generator gear 73, the motor power shaft gear 31 and the motor power shaft 3 sequentially.
[0096]
Therefore, charging the vehicle when the vehicle is parking may be achieved, and the number of charging modes is increased. In the parking-charging mode, the vehicle is not running, all power from the engine 4 may be used to charge the vehicle, thus providing a fast charging performance and enhancing the charging efficiency.
[0097]
In the running-charging condition, the input terminal 23d is engaged with the first output terminal 21d and engaged with the second output terminal 22d simultaneously, a part of power generated by the engine 4 may be output to one of the output shafts to drive the wheels of the vehicle, and the other part of power may be transmitted to the first motor generator 51 via the generator gear 73 and the motor power shaft gear 31, thus driving the first motor generator 51 to generate electric power.
[0098]
In the running-charging condition, as shown in Figs. 1-5, a part of power generated by the engine 4 may be transmitted to the first motor generator 51 via the first input shaft 11, the fifth-gear gear pair, the generator gear 73 and the motor power shaft gear 31 sequentially, thus driving the first motor generator 51 to generate electric power. The other part of the power generated by the engine 4 may be output via the second input shaft 12 and one component of the second-gear gear pair and the fourth-gear gear pair therebetween.
[0099]
In the running-charging condition, as shown in Fig. 1, a part of power generated by the engine 4 may be transmitted to the first motor generator 51 via the second input shaft 12, the sixth-gear gear pair, the generator gear 73 and the motor power shaft gear 31 sequentially, thus driving the first motor generator 51 to generate electric power. The other part of the power generated by the engine 4 may be output via the first input shaft 11 and one component of the first-gear gear pair and the third-gear gear pair therebetween.
[0100]
It is known to those skilled in the art that, a conventional dual clutch generally has two gear parts, and only one gear part is used when the dual clutch is working. In the power transmission system 100 according to embodiments of the present disclosure, however, two gears parts of the dual clutch 2d may be both engaged (for example, the input terminal 23d is engaged with the first output terminal 21d and engaged with the second output terminal 22d simultaneously) when the dual clutch 2d is working. In the present embodiment, a part of power from the engine 4 may be output to wheels of the vehicle via one output shaft to drive the vehicle to run, and the other part of power from the engine 4 may be transmitted to the first motor generator 51 to drive the first motor generator 51 to generate electric power. In this way, transmission modes of the vehicle are increased, and charging the vehicle while the vehicle is running may be achieved.
[0101]
In the power transmission system 100 according to embodiments of the present disclosure, a mechanical reverse mode, an electric reverse mode and a hybrid (both mechanic and electric) reverse mode may be achieved.
[0102]
In the mechanical reverse mode, the reverse of the vehicle is accomplished with power from the engine 4. Specifically, the engine 4 generates power and transmits the power to the reverse idler gear, and then transmits to the reverse output gear 72 via synchronization of reverse synchronizer 72c (synchronizing the reverse idler gear) .
[0103]
In the mechanical reverse mode, as shown in Fig. 1, power generated by the engine 4 may transmit to the third reverse idler gear 713 via the second input shaft 12, the first reverse idler gear 711 and the second reverse idler gear 712. The engaging sleeve of the reverse synchronizer 72c may move to the right to engage with the third reverse idler gear 713, thus transmitting the power generated by the engine 4 to the reverse output gear 72 via the reverse idler gear.
[0104]
In the mechanical reverse mode, as shown in Fig. 1, the reverse synchronizer 72c may engage with the third reverse idler gear 713.
[0105]
In the electric reverse mode, the reverse of the vehicle can be enabled with power from the first motor generator 51. Specifically, the first motor generator 51 may generate power and transmit the power to an output shaft via the generator gear 73, so as to be output. The generator gear 73 may dispose on the output shaft. In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 1-5, the output unit synchronizer 221c may engage with the output unit 221. Power generated by the first motor generator 51 may transmit to the output unit 221 via the motor power shaft gear 31, the generator gear 73 and the second output shaft 22, so as to be output. Only the output unit synchronizer 221c is in an engaged state in this transmission passage.
[0106]
In some embodiments, the first motor generator 51 may generate power and transmit the power to the reverse output gear 72 via the reverse idler gear and a synchronization of the reverse synchronizer 72c. In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 1-5, the output unit synchronizer 221c may disengage from the output unit 221, and the fifth-sixth gear synchronizer 56c may engage with the sixth-gear shift driven gear 6b, at the same time, the reverse synchronizer 72c may engage with the third reverse idler gear 713, thus transmitting power generated by the first motor generator 51 to reverse output gear 72 via the motor power shaft gear 31, the generator gear 73, the sixth-gear gear pair, the second input shaft 12 and the reverse idler gear, so as to be output. The reverse synchronizer 72c is in an engaged state and the fifth-sixth gear synchronizer 56c may engage with the sixth-gear shift driven gear 6b in this transmission passage.
[0107]
In the hybrid reverse mode, the reverse of the vehicle may be achieved with the engine 4 and the first motor generator 51. The hybrid reverse mode may be a combination of the above mechanical reverse mode and the electric reverse mode.
[0108]
In the hybrid reverse mode, the engine 4 may generate first power and transmit the first power to the reverse idler gear, and then the first power may be transmitted to the reverse output gear 72 via a synchronization of the reverse synchronizer 72c (synchronizing the reverse idler gear) , so as to be output.
[0109]
In addition, the first motor generator 51 may generate second power and transmit the second power to the reverse idler gear via the generator gear 73, and then the second power may be transmitted to reverse output gear 72 via a synchronization of the reverse synchronizer 72c. The reverse synchronizer 72c is in an engaged state and the fifth-sixth gear synchronizer 56c may engage with the sixth-gear shift driven gear 6b in this transmission passage.
[0110]
In some embodiments as shown in, for example, Fig. 1, when the power transmission system 100 in the hybrid reverse mode, combines the above mechanical reverse mode and the electric reverse mode. The engine 4 may transmit the first power to the second input shaft 12 as the above mechanical reverse mode described. The first motor generator 51 may transmit the second power to the second output shaft 12 as the above electric reverse mode described. The first power and the second power may be coupled together before being output to the wheels. In some embodiments, the first power and the second power may be coupled at the second input shaft 12 and the coupled power may be transmitted to the wheels via the reverse idler gear and the reverse output gear 72 so as to reverse the vehicle.
[0111]
In the hybrid reverse mode, the first motor generator 51 may adjust the speed, such that the second input shaft 12 may synchronously receive the first power from the engine 4 and the second power from the first motor generator 51, to provide a smooth and harmonious power transmission.
[0112]
As described, with the power transmission system 100 according to embodiments of the present disclosure, three reverse modes including the mechanical reverse mode, the electric reverse mode and the hybrid reverse mode may be achieved, thus increasing the reverse modes and facilitating a user to shift within the three reverse modes according to a practical condition, and therefore different driving requirements may be satisfied.
[0113]
When the vehicle has sufficient electric power, the electric reverse mode may be used. In the electric reverse mode, harmful exhaust gases can be minimized, and the energy consumption can be reduced. It is known to those skilled in the art that, an unskilled driver will take longer time and more maneuvers to park the vehicle at a predetermined position. Considering that the engine 4 may generate more harmful gases during a low-speed reverse process and that the engine 4 has relatively higher fuel consumption, because the engine is at an uneconomical rotating speed during the reverse process, the electric reverse mode of the present disclosure is highly effective in reducing fuel consumption during such a low-speed reverse process. In addition, with the generator being used as a power source, harmful exhaust gases can be minimized, and the energy consumption in a low-speed reverse process can also be decreased. Therefore, the fuel economy of the engine 4 may be enhanced.
[0114]
When the vehicle has insufficient or relatively less electric power, the mechanical reverse mode may be used. In a case that the vehicle needs to be reversed quickly or that the vehicle needs to be reversed with a larger power, the hybrid reverse mode may be used, thus enhancing the power of the vehicle and providing better driving experience to the user.
[0115]
It should be noted that, the above three reverse modes being applied in specific cases may be schematic examples provided for better understanding the present disclosure, which may not be construed that the described reverse mode should be applied when the vehicle is in the corresponding case. It is well known to those skilled in the art that, in a specific condition, a corresponding reverse mode may be selected according to specific requirements and a practical condition.
[0116]
With the power transmission system 100 according to embodiments of the present disclosure, a number of the reverse modes of the vehicle are increased, which provide a driver with options to reverse the vehicle. In this way, the driver may be provided more driving fun and reverse of the vehicle in different road conditions may be satisfied.
[0117]
In some embodiments, the power transmission system 100 further includes a second motor generator 52. With the second motor generator 52, the power of the power transmission system 100 may be improved, and more transmission modes can be provided.
[0118]
In some embodiments, the second motor generator 52 may perform power transmission with the shift driven gear 74 of the main reducer. For example, a gear may be disposed on a motor shaft of the second motor generator 52, and the gear is configured to directly mesh with the shift driven gear 74 so as to perform power transmission. In some embodiments, the second motor generator 52 is configured to connect with the first input shaft 11 or the first output shaft 21. In some embodiments, the second motor generator 52 may be integral with the differential 75. In some embodiments, the engine 4 and the first motor generator 51 are configured to drive front wheels of the vehicle, and the second motor generator 52 may be a wheel-side motor and configured to drive rear wheels. In some embodiments, the second motor generator 52 may drive the pair of rear wheels via a reducing mechanism. In some embodiments, two second motor generators 52 are provided, and each second motor generator 52 is configured to drive one rear wheel via a reducing mechanism.
[0119]
In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 2-5, the power transmission system 100 may include an electric differential lock unit. The electric differential lock unit may lock a pair of driving wheels when the vehicle is skidding, thus enhancing the antiskid performance and the pass performance of the vehicle.
[0120]
In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 2-5, the electric differential lock unit may include a third motor generator 201, a fourth motor generator 301 and an antiskid synchronizer 503. The engine 4 and/or the first motor generator 51 is configured to drive a first pair of wheels 76, the third motor generator 201 and the fourth motor generator 301 are configured to drive a second pair of wheels 77, the first pair of wheels 76 are one pair of the pair of front wheels and the pair of the rear wheels, and the second pair of wheels 77 are the other one pair of the pair of front wheels and the pair of the rear wheels. In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 2-5, the engine and the first motor generator 51 may drive the pair of front wheels, and the third motor generator 201 and the fourth motor generator 301 may drive the pair of rear wheels.
[0121]
In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 2-5, the third motor generator 201 is configured to rotate together with one of the second pair of wheels 77. In the present embodiment, the third motor generator 201 may output power to this one wheel so as to drive this one wheel to rotate. In some embodiments, power from this one wheel may be transmitted to the third motor generator 201, thus driving the third motor generator 201 to generate electric power.
[0122]
In some embodiments, the fourth motor generator 301 is configured to rotate together with the other one of the second pair of wheels 77. In the present embodiment, the fourth motor generator 301 may output power to the other one wheel so as to drive the other wheel to rotate. In some embodiments, power from the other wheel may be transmitted to the fourth motor generator 301, thus driving the fourth motor generator 301 to generate electric power. In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 2-5, the third motor generator 201 is configured to rotate together with a left rear wheel of the vehicle, and the fourth motor generator 301 is configured to rotate together with a right rear wheel of the vehicle. This embodiment is provided for example, and the present disclosure should not be construed to be limited by this embodiment.
[0123]
In some embodiments, the antiskid synchronizer 503 is configured to selectively synchronize the second pair of wheels 77, such that the second pair of wheels 77 may rotate together. In the present embodiment, the antiskid synchronizer 503 may synchronize the second pair of wheels 77, i.e., the antiskid synchronizer 503 is in an engaged state, such that the second pair of wheels 77 may form a fixed engagement. In this way, the second pair of wheels 77 may rotate together, without rotating at different rotating speeds.
[0124]
In some embodiments, when the antiskid synchronizer 503 is in a disengaged state, and the third motor generator 201 and the fourth motor generator 301 may drive corresponding wheels respectively, such that the corresponding wheels may rotate at different rotating speeds, thus the object that different wheels rotates at different speeds may be achieved. In some embodiments, when the antiskid synchronizer 503 is in a disengaged state, the third motor generator 201 and the fourth motor generator 301 may drive the second pair of wheels 77 to rotate at the same rotating speed.
[0125]
With the power transmission system 100 according to embodiment of the present disclosure, the third motor generator 201 and the fourth motor generator 301 are provided and configured to drive the second pair of wheels 77 respectively, and therefore the second pair of wheels 77 rotating at different rotating speeds may be achieved. When one of the second pair of wheels 77 is skidding, the antiskid synchronizer 503 may synchronize the second pair of wheels 77 such that the second pair of wheels 77 rotate together. In this way, power output by two motors (for example, the third motor generator 201 and the fourth motor generator 301) or one motor (for example, the third motor generator 201 or the fourth motor generator 301) may be coupled to drive the second pair of wheels 77 together, thus enhancing the antiskid capability and passing performance of the vehicle.
[0126]
The power transmission system 100 according to embodiment of the present disclosure includes the antiskid synchronizer 503, and therefore a mechanical self-locking differential mechanism commonly used in an axle (such as a rear axle) a conventional power transmission system may be avoided. In addition to the functions of the antiskid synchronizer 503 itself, the function of a mechanical self-locking differential mechanism is performed by the antiskid synchronizer 503, and therefore the power transmission system 100 according to embodiments of the present disclosure may have a more compact structure and relatively lower cost.
[0127]
The third motor generator 201, the fourth motor generator 301, and transmission method thereof will be described below in detail with references to Figs. 2-5.
[0128]
In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 2-4, the third motor generator 201 may perform power transmission with the corresponding wheel via a gear mechanism. In some embodiments, the fourth motor generator 301 may perform power transmission with the corresponding wheel via a gear mechanism.
[0129]
The gear mechanism has a simple structure and is convenient for use in power transmission. In addition, with the gear mechanism, a required transmission ratio may be obtained and the power transmission may be reliable. In some embodiments, the third motor generator 201 and the fourth motor generator 301 may perform power transmission with corresponding wheel (s) via the same gear mechanism. In the present embodiment, the gear mechanism is common, and the power transmission system 100 may be highly symmetric, thus avoiding the center of gravity moving to one side. With one common gear mechanism, the center of gravity may be located right in the middle or substantially the middle of the two wheels, and both the stability and reliability of the power transmission system 100 may be improved.
[0130]
In some embodiments, as shown in Figs. 3-5, the gear mechanism between the third motor generator 201 and the corresponding wheel may include a first gear 401, a second gear 402, a third gear 403, and a fourth gear 404.
[0131]
In some embodiments, the first gear 401 may be disposed on the first output shaft 202 corresponding to the third motor generator 201, and the first gear 401 is configured to rotate together with the first output shaft 202. In some embodiments, the first output shaft 202 may output power generated by the third motor generator 201. In some embodiments, the first output shaft 202 may transmit power generated by the corresponding wheel to the third motor generator 201.
