  • Publication number: 20200247229
    Abstract: A hybrid drive module (1) for a motor vehicle includes a housing (GG), a torque converter (TC), and an electric machine with a rotor (R) and a stator (S). The rotor (R) is arranged on a rotor carrier (RT), which is fixedly connected to a hub (N). The hub (N) is rotatably supported via at least one first bearing (L1) and is supported in radial and axial directions against a bearing shield (LS). The hub (N) is rotationally fixed to a converter housing (TCH) of the torque converter (TC) via a rivet joint (RI) or a screw connection. A drive train for a motor vehicle including such a hybrid drive module (1) is also provided.

  • Patent number: 9140348
    Abstract: A hydrodynamic coupling includes a housing coupled to a driveshaft having an impeller and a turbine wheel arranged in the housing driven by the impeller and a first damper arrangement by which the housing is coupled to a driven member by a lockup clutch. The first damper arrangement includes a first torsional vibration damper connected to the lockup clutch that is rotatable around an axis of rotation against the action of a first damper spring arrangement. A second torsional vibration damper is connected to the first torsional vibration damper and rotatable around the axis of rotation against the action of a second damper spring arrangement. The turbine wheel is connected to an intermediate torsional vibration damper region including a first secondary side, a second primary side, a second damper arrangement has a deflection mass carrier connected to the second secondary side.
