This paper presents input coupled split power transmissions, arrangements and comparisons between the single and dual stage designs. Selection of the shift point between stages is discussed. Mathematical models for the transmission are constructed. An algorithm is developed for an efficiency optimization routine. The effects of the gear material strength, gear module, gear tooth width, and shaft offset on the efficiency are determined. Power loss contributions are presented in conjunction with their effect on the overall transmission efficiency.
