Dynamical load sharing behaviors of heavy load planetary gear system with multi-floating components Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2018 World Scientific Publishing Company. To investigate the dynamical load sharing behaviors of multi-floating components in the heavy load planetary gear system, a multi-floating planetary gear system that includes a floating central component and a quasi-floating planet flexible supporting pin is employed. Then a 21 degree of freedom lumped parameters dynamical model of this system is presented to study the dynamical load sharing behaviors. Some influencing factors, such as supporting stiffness, positions error of sun or carrier, and external input load are analyzed on the dynamical load sharing of the planetary gear system with multi-floating components. The results demonstrate that the load sharing condition of the system is best when both the sun gear and planet gears are multi-floating at the same time. When the planet gear position errors remain constant, reducing the flexible pin stiffness of planet gear or increasing external input load can effectively improve the load sharing. These conclusions are verified by the relevant experiments.
