Abstract : Disclosed is a power transmission that uses inertia forces. The drive member carries a plurality of high density rollers that are acted on by centrifugal force. The driven member includes reaction surfaces that periodically move the high density rollers inwardly in opposition to the centrifugal force. As the rollers are moved inwardly they impart energy to the driven member, thereby producing a power transmission action. The reaction surfaces on the driven member are designed so that the system is responsive to speed and load changes.
