German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / Gearshift process
German term or phrase: Momentenvorhalt
This is from a calibration guide detailing the parameters in a software system for controlling an automated gearshift sequence. This section is talking about engine intervention for control of the engine speed during the gear change.
Über diesen Offset ["Vorsteuermoment Getriebeverstellung"] kann parallel zum reduzierenden Motoreingriff über Zündwinkel ein um das Vorsteuermoment erhöhter **Momentenvorhalt** über den limitierenden Motoreingriff über Drosselklappe an die Motorsteuerung übermittelt werden. Durch diesen **Vorhalt** kann die geringere Dynamik des Luftmengenpfades in der Motorsteuerung kompensiert.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for the suggestion, I had thought they might be talking of a delay. "Moment" in this cases refers to "torque".
