Many design parameters affect the performance of continuous variable transmissions. This paper presents the optimization of a continuous variable transmission by using the simulated annealing algorithm. The Bessel method of curve fitting and the tensor product method of surface fitting were used to facilitate the discrete fuel consumption, emissions of carbon monoxide (CO) and HC compound of experimental engine data. A compromise method was used to analyze the multi-objective functions. The values for design variables are recommended for further development.
