What Is a Dual Clutch Transmission?
A dual clutch transmission is essentially two separate transmissions running in parallel and operating as one unit. While one gear is in operation on one side, the next gear on the opposing side is standing by and when the shift occurs, is put into play by a hydraulically actuated clutch. Gear shifts take place in fractions of a second in a smooth fashion, without loss of drive or hesitation. The near pristine gear change performance and reduced engine RPM fluctuations at shift points provides improved fuel economy.
Cars equipped with DCT transmissions often have manual or automatic modes allowing the driver to choose their level of input in gear selection. They also sometimes have “launch modes” for high RPM acceleration from a standing stop.
Here is an informative video from the transmission people at Tremec on the dual clutch transmission concept.
