My thoughts are:

All the energy that goes through a planetary gear set goes through the planet gear.

This energy can be quantified as power with torque and rpm relative to the axis of the planet gear.

In summary, John D argues that all the energy that goes through a planetary gear set goes through the planet gear and that this energy can be quantified as power with torque and rpm relative to the axis of the planet gear. He says that this power can be calculated using the power on the carrier and the rpm of the planet gear. He also points out that the ratio between the torque on the planet and the torque on the input is always the same.f

"Gear(s)? Energy? Or torques/loads? Ring or sun stationary?quantify the energy on the planet gear

As if it was a gear in a sequential gear train with torque rpm and horsepower. We all chase torque through a gear set using our rules but all the parts have power, energy. I thought.

Because all the energy that goes through the planet set goes through the planet gear I would think the energy should be calculated the same. For many years we have been using this gear system with one member fixed. Lately we have been using it in power split situations as in CVTs and hybrid systems. You could use the example of power in on the planet carrier (arm) and out on the sun and ring. Even with the sun or ring stopped all power is always going through the planet gear.

Pc = Pp = Pr + Ps Power on the carrier equals the power on the planet equals power on the ring plus the sun.

Thanks for any help,

John D

I'm more inclined to write this as PPc = Pp = Pr + Ps

Well, I don't know if this was what you were looking for.

I can calculate the rpm but how do I calculate the torque? Can I just use the power on the carrier and the rpm of the planet gear?

Bystander is right. For purposes of understanding I was using just one planet. The point is the total power is on the planet(s). Power*5252/rpm on the planet?

Thanks guys,

The unknown appears to be the torque ( N_{p})

This is my question? Can I make the statements: The power on the planet is equal to the power on the input. The power on the planet can be expressed in torque and rpm. Ignoring efficiency. A side question would be; is the ratio between N

According with the equations I don't think so.

If any of the advisors are watching I would expect we will get a disagreement.

There is an equal force on the ring and sun rule that gets in the way.

That is really what I would like to get a conversation started about.

Thanks felmon38,
