A team of researchers at the Technische Universität München in Germany has developed a CVT hybrid powertrain that enables combustion engines to start up very fast. Another special feature is that it uses double-layer capacitors for energy storage. This hybrid concept is used to develop control algorithms for CVTs and for power management in hybrid vehicles. The algorithms are implemented and tested on two test benches and also in a prototype vehicle.
