The paper focuses on the internal construction of an original Constant Power Continuously Variable Transmission (CP-CVT). In a recent publication the authors have introduced the fundamentals of the kinematics and dynamics of the CP-CVT. The present study focuses on the optimisation of the CP-CVT’s internal geometry and the size of its active elements in order to obtain maximum power transmitted with least variation over a range of transmission ratio. The paper concludes that for a specific geometry the CP-CVT presented offers promising characteristics that recommend it as a good candidate in the race of developing a new generation of the automobiles’ powertrain.
