Torque converter is defined as a turbine used to transmit power from a driving member to a driven member via hydraulic action, providing changes in drive ratio and torque. In automotive use, it links the drive plate at the rear of the engine to the automatic transmission. This torque increase, however, is achieved at the expense of rpm and efficiency.

Moreover, it is a form of fluid coupling used to transmit torque from the power plant to the rest of the drive train.
