A new power systems evaluation technique was developed to compare average fuel consumption and output power capability between different systems. Many combinations of engines, transmissions, and control systems could be represented by a modular general-purpose power train simulator. The torque and speed requirements of a vehicle were represented with a stochastic model. This technique was applied to the selection of a gas turbine transmission system for an off-road vehicle.
