Effect of Compound Asymmetric Gearing on Dynamics Performance of Gear Transmission 2023-01-1135

The fast-growing automotive industry and rapid development of new E-drive technology nowadays brings about higher gear design requirements. E-motor applications challenge gear performance due to their higher load and speed levels compared to traditional internal combustion engines (ICE). The advantages of using asymmetric gears include lower stress, higher efficiency, better bending and contact strength, increased durability, etc. However, asymmetric gear dynamics are not well understood or analyzed, and this paper performs extensive study on the effect of asymmetric gears on NVH performance of compound gear transmissions. The parametric study covers different combinations of pressure angle and root fillet settings on the drive and coast sides of the gear. The analysis is focused on the sensitivity of gear transmission error (TE) and mesh stiffness towards different asymmetric gear designs. On the system level, the influence of gear alignment and line of action (LOA) on overall transmission error (OTE) is investigated. Finally, this study aims at providing an effective method of asymmetric gear design optimization for automotive applications in view of noise and vibration characteristics.
