Planetary gear systems offer desired speed and torque variation with a compact and lighter construction than traditional gear trains. Transmission losses are one of the main concerns. Modification of gear teeth geometry is one of the remedial actions to reduce friction.
The authors would like to express their gratitude to JCB transmission and Innovate UK for their support of this research.
