Paper Abstract

Optimal design of motor and gear for high load acceleration becomes very simple if the fact is used that an ideal gear transfers the product of torque and acceleration unchanged just like the product of torque and speed. Due to this analogy torque demand for acceleration of load inertia can be investigated in the same way as torque-speed requirement for constant speed operation of the load. In contrast to the conventional mathematical method which is based on calculation of extreme values of acceleration the new method delivers very simple design rules in particular when stationary load torque cannot be neglected. Furthermore, consideration of torque-acceleration diagrams leads to a deep insight in the design process which enables to modify the design if required.
