Until recent years, most passenger vehicles were equipped with manual transmissions.
With the rise of the automatic transmission, driving has become more convenient

The torque converter is among the most crucial components of an automatic
transmission. Since an
automatic transmission does not have a clutch system, the torque converter is used to allow the
transmission to seamlessly cycle between gears. The torque converter transfers
power from the engine to the transmission through a process that is known
as hydraulic coupling. As the engine turns, its rotation sets the torque
converter in motion.
Along with the torque converter, the planetary gearset is another important
feature of every automatic transmission. The planetary gearset contains
all of the gears that are used to set the vehicle in motion. Since smaller
planet gears rotate around a central gear, known as a sun gear, this type
of gearset derives the basics of its design from our solar system. As
the automatic transmission shifts, the planetary gears will move into
different placements around the sun gear.
Transmission Bands and Servo Pistons
In order to keep the planetary gearset in place as it shifts between gears,
each automatic transmission is equipped with either transmission bands
or servo pistons. In a transmission band style transmission, metal bands
are installed around the gear housing. As the band tightens or loosens,
it will encourage the transmission to cycle between its various gears.
