As an example, look at a person riding a bicycle, with the person acting like the electric motor. If see your face tries to ride that bike up a steep hill in a gear that’s made for low rpm, she or he will struggle as
they try to maintain their balance and achieve an rpm that will permit them to climb the hill. However, if indeed they shift the bike’s gears right into a speed that will produce a higher rpm, the rider will have
a much easier time of it. A continuous force could be applied with soft rotation being offered. The same logic applies for commercial applications that want lower speeds while maintaining necessary
• Inertia complementing. Today’s servo motors are producing more torque in accordance with frame size. That’s due to dense copper windings, lightweight materials, and high-energy magnets.
This creates greater inertial mismatches between servo motors and the loads they want to move. Using a gearhead to better match the inertia of the electric motor to the inertia of the strain allows for using a smaller electric motor and outcomes in a more responsive system that’s simpler to tune. Again, that is accomplished through the gearhead’s ratio, where the reflected inertia of the strain to the motor is decreased by 1/ratio2.
Recall that inertia is the measure of an object’s level of resistance to improve in its movement and its own function of the object’s mass and form. The higher an object’s inertia, the more torque is needed to accelerate or decelerate the thing. This means that when the strain inertia is much larger than the engine inertia, sometimes it could cause extreme overshoot or boost settling times. Both conditions can decrease production range throughput.
However, when the electric motor inertia is bigger than the load inertia, the engine will require more power than is otherwise essential for this application. This raises costs because it requires having to pay more for a electric motor that’s larger than necessary, and since the increased power intake requires higher operating costs. The solution is by using a gearhead to complement the inertia of the electric motor to the inertia of the strain.
