This seminar explains the fundamentals of planetary gears focusing kinematics, power flow and efficiency. It begins by illuminating the basic difference between normal and planetary gears. The power flows are derived by analyzing the kinematics on the basis of the Willis equation and examining the torque relationships. The complex power flow situation in planetary gears, which consist of meshing and coupling power, is systematically explained and related to the overall efficiency.
