ItaliaspeedTV - ZF 8HP70 8-Speed Automatic Transmission (Chrysler 300/Lancia Thema)
ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic transmission
ZF engineers had set the bar high to produce a new benchmark for automatic
car transmissions. The second generation of the ZF 6HP 6-speed transmission
entered production only in 2006 included reaction times faster than human perception, direct engine
linkage by early-stage torque converter lock-up and intelligent, adaptive
control software, that almost reads the driver's intentions from his foot.
But the new transmission is capable of even more - it saves (even more)
fuel. It also guarantees ultimate driving enjoyment, as well as the
variability needed to be able to use future technologies.
Several innovations have been introduced in the new 8HP to reduce fuel
consumption: the completely new transmission concept with four gear sets
and only two shift elements open, a higher overall gear ratio, a variable
oil pump, new torque converter, and optimized hydraulic and transmission
control. A stop-start function is offered as an optional function. Idling
at a standstill, the engine automatically switches off. When engaged again,
the engine automatically starts up. Even at standstill times of just 10
seconds, switching off the engine cuts average consumption noticeably --
and also CO2 emissions. The start/stop function is enabled by the
development of the hydraulic impulse oil storage (HIS). It supplies the
hydraulic oil that the transmission's shift elements need for starting.
When the engine is switched off, it allows for a quick start -- as it is
required with the start/stop function. Already 350 milliseconds after
starting the engine, the vehicle is ready for setting off. With the
start/stop function of the hydraulic impulse oil storage, it is possible to
reduce fuel consumption by another 5%. Compared with the worldwide most
efficient 6-speed automatic transmission by ZF, the newly developed 8-speed
automatic transmission saves another 11%.
Benefits of HIS
The hydraulic impulse oil storage makes more complex solutions obsolete,
such as a more powerful oil pump in the transmission or an electric
hydraulic pump. As a larger dimensioned transmission oil pump would
considerably neutralize the fuel savings in continuous operation, an
electric pump is an additional burden on the main power supply, has
disadvantages in terms of noise, and leads to a considerably higher
integration effort. In contrast, with the hydraulic impulse oil storage, ZF
engineers have already considered the lowest possible system costs and easy
installation of the unit. Other expensive adaptations of the transmission
are not required; after all, with the new development of the transmission,
ZF engineers have already considered the integration of the hydraulic
impulse oil storage by ensuring a favorable design of the components and
the respective routing.
Farewell to conventional gear set concepts
The ZF engineers went on the lookout for a completely new transmission
system and discarded all previous established gear set concepts. Armed with
a comprehensive list of criteria, the development engineers systematically
appraised thousands of possible epicyclic gearing systems and their
arrangement variants. The outcome was an 8-speed automatic transmission
system leaving just four simple gear sets and five shift elements.
Lower drag losses and higher gear meshing efficiency
The clever thing, though is the shift plan. There are only 5 shift elements
- multi-disc clutches and brakes in the heart of the transmission - and
only 2 are open in each gear. The fewer open shift elements there are, the
fewer transmission parts there are rotating relative to one another. On the
bottom line, this results in a significant reduction of drag losses in the
transmission. The development engineers were also able to increase the gear
meshing efficiency with the new transmission concept. Energy is lost in
some gears when power is transmitted through gear wheels. In the new
automatic transmission, these losses are below 2% throughout - a further
factor helping to reduce consumption.
