Gear box in the motor
The application is very extensive, often used in wind turbines, and is an important mechanical component orthogonal gear box
Its main function is to transmit the power generated by the wind wheel under the action of the wind to the generator and to obtain the corresponding rotation speed. Usually, the rotational speed of the wind wheel is very low, and it is far from the rotational speed required by the generator power generation. It must be achieved through the speed-increasing effect of the gear box gear pair. Therefore, the gear box is also called a speed increase box.
Secondly, the gear box has the following functions:
1. Acceleration and deceleration is what is often called a gearbox.
2. Change the direction of the drive. For example, we can use two sector gears to transfer the force vertically to another axis of rotation.
3, change the torque. Under the same power conditions, the faster the speed of the gear, the smaller the torque on the shaft, and vice versa.
4. Clutch function: We can separate the engine from the load by separating the two originally meshed gears. Such as brake clutches.
5. Allocate power. For example, we can use an engine to drive multiple slave shafts through the gearbox spindle to realize the function of one engine driving multiple loads.
