THE 4QMET vs MECHANICAL CVTs

A SMALLER ENGINE CAN POWER A CAR WITH THE 4QMET TRANSMISSION
The torque required to accelerate a car from a stand-still is much higher than that required to keep the car at the desired speed. Although about 20HP of power is sufficient to keep a car moving at the desired speed (enough to overcome wind resistance and friction), conventional car engines are sized at over 100HP in order to produce enough torque to accelerate the car at a reasonable rate.

Furthermore, engines using today's transmission technology are sized larger to accomodate the demand for power at the lowest levels of efficiency when starting a vehicle from a stopped position, which is when that power is needed most (see the graph here).

The 4QMET enables use of a much smaller motor since all of the power from the motor is delivered at its peak efficiency; less power wasted - more for accelerating the car.

ENERGY RECOVERY AND REGENERATION
As shown in the graph, the 4QMET works the same way in forward and reverse directions. This characteristic enables the 4QMET to provide energy to the wheels, as well as to recover energy through regeneration when slowing down or going downhill.

Effectively, the energy required to accelerate a vehicle from a stopped position is recovered during the deceleration cycle, less the efficiency losses. Because the 4QMET should operate at such a high efficiency, a significant percentage of the energy could be recovered, thereby reducing net effective energy required to be supplied by the energy source.

The 4QMET principle of operation enables it to recover regenerative energy and store it in a battery OR for fuel cell applications, in a subsequent process, generate hydrogen to provide additional fuel for fuel cells.
