Basic relationships that control the dynamic performance of toric variable-speed drives are studied. These basic toric relationships are then utilized to derive seven linear differential equations that describe a commercial model of a toric transmission. Experimental verification of these equations is made to support the theoretical work. By means of a numerical evaluation of the transfer functions, a simplified interpretation is made to show the relationships between transmission parameters and dynamic performance.
