CTI Mag: Further CO2 savings thanks to Electric Transmission Oil Pumps

Conventional, mechanically driven oil pumps must provide the power required under maximum load at each speed in the transmission. In general, under real operating conditions these pumps waste not only valuable energy, but also material and space. Electric oil pumps, on the other hand, provide the power which is actually required at the load points.…
