Torque exerted on the machine shaft
We know that
Torque developed by motor × Angular speed of motor
= Torque exerted on machine shaft
× Angular speed of machine shaft
or 100 × ωA = Torque exerted on machine shaft × ωD ∴ Torque exerted on machine shaft = 100 × 1000
= 100 × A = 100 ×
= 2692 N-m Ans.
ND l Chapter 13 : Gear Trains 465 Example 13.20. An epicyclic gear train consists of a sun wheel
S, a stationary internal gear E and three identical planet wheels P
carried on a star- shaped planet carrier C. The size of different toothed
wheels are such that the planet carrier C rotates at 1/5th of the speed
of the sunwheel S. The minimum number of teeth on any wheel is 16.
The driving torque on the sun wheel is 100 N-m. Determine : 1. number of teeth on different wheels of the train, and 2. torque necessary to
keep the internal gear stationary.
Solution. Given : NC = NS
5 Fig. 13.27 1. Number of teeth on different wheels
The arrangement of the epicyclic gear train is shown in Fig. 13.27. Let T S and T E be the
number of teeth on the sun wheel S and the internal gear E respectively. The table of motions is
given below :
