Optimal Design of Drive System in Wind Power Generation Acceleration Gearbox Based on Matlab
Performance of gearbox drive system has a great impact on the working life of the whole drive mechanism, especially in wind power generation systems. Using the power split differencial drive system, the objective function of speed up Gearbox optimal design is built adopting the nonlinear constrant minimum function Fmincon from Matlab, the constraints are settled and the relevant parameters of the gearbox with the minimum volume while satisfying the transmission ratio are finally obtained. Then the optimised results is verified with single factor method. The results show that the overall volume of the gearbox is reduced by 9.13% after optimization.
