A novel flywheel hybrid powertrain is proposed. It is composed with multi-planetary gear system (PGS) and CVT. Combining the power split function of PGS and continuous gear ratio shifting function of CVT, the proposed configurations can control driving mode and power split ratio with only 2 control DoF. It is done by changing the relative location of free node by controlling CVT ratio.
