In the last few decades, power-split infinitely variable transmission (IVT) systems have attracted considerable attention as they ensure high driving comfort with high total efficiencies, especially in off-highway vehicles and agricultural machines. In this study, a novel power-split-input-coupled IVT system is developed. The effects of various dynamic parameters such as power flow and Willis transmission ratio on the mechanical efficiency of the systems are investigated. Kinematic analysis of the new system has been carried out. In addition power flow equations are derived as functions of the power that flows through the infinitely variable unit (IVU). The results indicate that the main parameters, which are strictly related to mechanical efficiency are the power and torque flows through the IVU. © 2019 by ASME.
