Abstract : In order to strengthen the understanding of gear transmission error and to verify mathematical models which predict transmission errors. a test stand that will measure the transmission error of gear pairs under unloaded conditions, the goal of this report was to design and perform dynamic analyses of a unique tester with the capability of measuring the transmission error of gears under load. The loaded transmission error test stand will have the capability to continuously load gear pair at torques up to 16,000 in. - lb at shaft speeds from 0 to 5 rpm. Measurement of the transmission error will be accomplished with high resolution optical encoders and the accompanying signal processing unit from existing unloaded transmission error tester. Input power to the test gear box will be supplied by a dc torque motor while the load will be applied with a similar torque motor. dual input, dual output control system will regulate the speed and torque of the system.
