Hydraulic Design Optimisation of a Torque Converter

 

Design Targets
Improve the hydraulic performance of the torque converter and reduce its power consumption at various speed ratios.

Deliverables
Redesign geometries of three components of the torque converter, i.e., pump, turbine and stator.

Impact

Up to 12% reduction in torque converter power consumption at design speed ratio and significant improvement at off-design.
