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.

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


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