Today Gleason has four major concepts for high reduction transmissions which are ideal for electric vehicles and hybrid cars. Gleason has begun to work with several electric vehicle OEM’s on the integration of these new concepts into production vehicles.
This book eDrive Transmission Guide was written and published by Dr. Hermann J. Stadtfeld to give an overview of the most popular conventional eDrive solutions and to present the new Gleason developments to the automotive and transmission manufacturing industry. The book also intends to inspire mechanical and electrical engineering students with the new Gleason concepts in order to gain their interest in the many new tasks engineers will encounter in future concepts of electrically propelled automobiles, challenged by a healthy mix of Battery Electric Vehicles and Hybrids which generate their electricity "on the go."
In order to make this book readily available for every interested automotive engineer, the main publication media format is as an e-book. The e-book is available for purchase online. However, it is also possible to read the e-book on the Gleason website. For those with a fondness for having a bound book as reference in their office book shelf, a hard cover version of this book is available as well.
eDrive Transmission Guide covers 11 topics on 220 pages and has 153 figures - which provide a better understanding and easier retention of the covered material.
The content is divided in 6 parts:
Introduction to Electric Vehicle Transmissions
Automotive Drive Concepts Super Reduction Hypoid eDrives Reversed Pericyclic Transmissions Double Differentials as Ultra-High Speed Reducer Psychoacoustic applied to eDrives
