Overall Transmission Error Calculation of Differential Gear 2021-01-1101

Overall transmission error (OTE) of gear system has been a main focus of gear dynamics study. The input-output transmission error (TE) depends heavily on mesh phasing conditions. Only reducing loaded transmission error (LTE) of a single gear mesh is not enough to ensure good NVH performance in a multiple gear mesh system. In order to predict OTE during bevel gear design instead of just analyzing single mesh TE, a new bevel gear OTE calculation method will be presented in this study. Based on single mesh parameters including loaded and unloaded TE or mesh stiffness, the OTE of a differential gear set can be calculated without building a complete system model. The effect of phasing on system OTE shows that different tooth combination can have significant effect on dynamic performance which should be considered during design.
