The Future of Wind Turbines: Comparing Direct Drive and

The gearbox is the highest-maintenance part of a turbine; therefore, removing the gearbox improves the reliability of a turbine. The gearbox is also the heaviest element in a turbine, weight-wise, so removing it improves this aspect of a turbine, as well. Figure 4. Wind turbine gearbox arrangement.

How does a cycloidal drive work?

Animation: Operating principle of a planetary gear with fixed ring gear. In the case of the planetary gear, the rotary axes are the axes of the planet gears (shown in blue) and in the case of the cycloidal gear, the axes of the cycloidal discs. While the planet gears are driven by a sun gear, the cycloid discs are driven by an eccentric shaft.

What does a planetary gearbox do? And it's advantages

The name planetary gearbox came from the fact of how different gears move together. In space planetary system, we see a sun (solar) gear, satellite (ring) gear and two or more planet gears. The sun-gear is at the centre and drives the system. Thus, it acts as the inner shaft and moves the planet gears, which are locked in the planet gears.

Introduction and application of gearbox

The transmission is a mechanism used to change the rotation speed and torque from the engine. It can change the transmission ratio of the output shaft and the input shaft in a fixed or stepwise manner, also known as a gearbox.The transmission consists of a variable speed transmission mechanism and a control mechanism, and some cars also have a power output mechanism.

Epicyclic Gearbox

Epicyclic Gearbox

 · The Gearbox (Transmission) is a mechanical device used to increase the output torque or to change the speed (RPM) of a motor. The shaft of the motor is connected to one end of the gearbox and through the internal configuration of gears of a gearbox, provides a given output torque and speed determined by the gear ratio.

Epicyclic gearing

Epicyclic gearing or planetary gearing is a gear system that consists of one or more outer gears, or planet gears, revolving about a central, or sun gear. Typically, the planet gears are mounted on a movable arm or carrier which itself may rotate relative to the sun gear. Epicyclic gearing systems may also incorporate the use of an outer ring gear or annulus, which meshes with the planet gears.

Epicyclic Gear Trains

There are disadvantages in the application of planetary gearboxes. One disadvantage of using this style of gearbox is the loss of lubrication leading to failure when running at high speeds because the lubricant is slung away. This disadvantage can be overcome through the use of pressurized forced lubrication systems.
