Dynamics of Transmissions Using Epicyclic Gear Trains 2001-01-3903
Due to the current changes in the automotive industry several new technologies are being developed and the old ones analyzed. The epicyclic gear trains, or planetary gear trains, are important in the automatic transmissions. In this paper a model is presented to describe the behavior of the transmission during the process of gear change. For this the system chose must be fully described, that means the relation among the rotations of the components must established.
