Science / transmission
 Chinese term or phrase: 近等阶变速 It also appears in 多段近等阶变速机 The patent application I am translating now describes a multi-stage transmission gear for forming machine. The problem of unstability and chaotic change of the speed is solved by the author of this invention. I am mostly curious about the function of 近 here. Is it possible to use "quasi" or "approximate" ? And can you propose an English version for the whole term? Thank you!
