The planetary gear train is a core component of the automatic transmission system. The ability of the planetary gear train to deliver reliable gains in power, durability, higher torque-to-weight ratios, and configuration flexibility has enabled this gear set to become a key component of the automotive powertrain. A fundamental understanding of planetary gear trains is critical for individuals working in the automotive and industrial transmission fields.
In this introductory one-day seminar on the basic principles of the planetary gear train, the instructor will guide participants through the basic structure and the various types of planetary gear trains. In addition, participants will be introduced to ratio calculation methods, gear train arrangements and power flow, component life estimation, and related NVH issues. Together, the principles and practices presented in this seminar will provide participants a fundamental and practical understanding of this important technology.
