2002_17 - The Parallel Shift Gearbox PSG
Twin Clutch Gearbox with Dry Clutches (7th LuK Symposium 2002)
The Parallel Shift Gearbox (PSG) is a variant of the twin clutch gearbox. Such gearboxes have been around for a long time. For example, at the end of the 1980s a Porsche twin clutch gearbox (PDK) was being used in motor racing . However, it never reached production. Thanks to the search for transmission systems which minimise fuel consumption, twin clutch gearboxes are now experiencing a renaissance.
