Modelling Multi-Way Planetary Gears by Means of Contour Graphs
The present paper presents multi-way planetary gears modelled by means of contour graphs. The goals of modelling could be versatile: ratio calculating via algorithmic generation of equations, the analysis of forces and acceleration or optimization and structure analysis. The article describes an exemplary gear. Several drives/gears are consecutively taken into account discussing functional schemes, assigned contour graphs and a generated system of equations and their solutions. The advantages of the method include an algorithmic approach and a general approach where particular drives are the cases of the generally created model. Moreover, the method allows further examination and synthesis tasks, e.g. checking the isomorphism of design solutions.
