Title: Investigation of power split schemes for modern hybrid cars transmissions
Keywords: hybrid cars, planetary gears, power split

Abstract: The modes of operation of the transmissions for hybrid cars are studied in this work, using planetary gears for connecting the internal combustion engine (ICE) and the electric machines (motor-generators). The peculiarities of the two-stream variants with an electric branch – a closing block consisting of two electric machines is analysed. This achieves a stepless gear change and an increase in overall efficiency with respect to the efficiency of electrical machines. The theoretical formulation is based on the dependences between the losses of a two-stream circuit, which proves that this increase is a function of the relative share of power transmitted through the electrical branch. The characteristics of typical two-stream circuits with input differential and output differential with one mechanical and one electrical branch are determined. The aim is to evaluate not only the change in the total efficiency, but also the kinematic gear ratio and the ratio of the torques and their range
