Innovation Synthesis of Basic Configurationof Epicyclic Gear Trains with Three-Degrees of Freedom
Epicyclical gear trains with three-degrees of freedom have found its wide application as the development of new technique. Currently, nearly all domestic researches on epicyclical gear trains with three or more degrees of freedom are aimed at the practical application, and scare works systematically investigate basic configuration and synthesis of the train system. An innovation synthesis method is proposed based on the compound joint kinematic chain and the substitution of low pair with high pair for epicyclical gear trains with three-degrees of freedom, and the possible independent basic configurations of epicyclical gear trains with three-degrees of freedom are obtained by applying the proposed method and the utilization of the method is also discussed. The method provides not only a new approach for innovation synthesis of epicyclical gear trains but also a few basic configurations of epicyclical gear trains with three-degrees of freedom for practice design.
