The thesis concerns the experimental analysis of a patented device, namely Marcantonini's torque converter, which is based on the inertial moments produced by rotating eccentric masses around a common axis to transfer torque from the input shaft to the output one. The goal is to perform a dedicate experimental analysis on this device, according to transient and steady-state operating conditions. The first part of the study is focused on the set-up of the test bench, deepening the technical characteristics and input/output connectors settings of its hardware components, in order to realize the correct configuration mode and to avoid measurement errors during the test cases. The test bench software environment is Labview for the trials data acquisition and MatLab for the post-analysis of their results. The test cases are conducted with variable and constant angular speeds and they are described by reporting the trial settings and conditions. The study of Marcantonini's device is performed evaluating and comparing the analysis of test cases results with technical data of the main mechanical components implemented in the power transmission. The results reveal the capability of Marcantonini's device to work with a variable transmission ratio, which automatically adapts the input shaft angular speed to the load on the output shaft.
