Abstract:

The purpose of the device is to convert unidirectional torque of constant speed such as from a steam turbine prime mover into variable speed output torque in either the forward or reverse directions. The concept offers an efficient, lightweight low volume design with potential application over a wide range of speeds and power ratings in the range from hundreds to tens of thousands of horsepower. This machine concept can be applied to commercial and military advanced concept vehicles for both terrain and marine environments.
