e-Drive Days / Day 1 / Design of e-Drive Gears

Presented by: Brian Stringer & Dr. Aljaz Pogacnik

High rpm’s, reversal of load direction, low vibration excitation, high contact ratios, increased risk of scuffing, deformed housings ... the design, optimization and service life calculation of gears for e-drives is a world of its own. The presentation shows how individual requirements can be covered by the choice and variation of gear geometry. Parameters such as material selection or heat treatment are deliberately ignored to concentrate on gear geometry optimization, which is readily accessible to the designer. Three dimensions are addressed: macro geometry, modifications and manufacturing deviations. This presentation is rounded off with the peculiarities of strength calculation in case of frequent changes in torque direction with torque-time series measured from test rigs.
