Abstract

This paper presents a study on the determination of the optimum gear ratios of a two-stage worm gearbox. To find the optimum gear ratios, an optimization problem was performed. Also, the reasonable gearbox structure was chosen as the objective function of the optimization problem. In addition, the effects of the input factors including the total gearbox ratio, the electric motor speed, and the output torque were investigated. Besides, a simulation experiment was designed and performed by computer programs to evaluate the influences of these input factors on the optimum gear ratios. Moreover, some models to calculate the optimum gear ratios of a two-stage worm gearbox were suggested. As these equations are explicit, the determination of the optimum gear ratios is accurate and uncomplicated.
