Previous works illustrate that the orientation of pinion run-out errors has strong effect on the load sharing behavior of floating planetary gear sets. To minimize the inequality of load sharing, an in-phase rule for assembling pinions is recommended by other researchers, while a theoretical proof is still lacking. In this paper, not only the orientation but also the assembly sequence of the pinions is under scrutiny. A generalized mathematical model is developed in order to study the best load… CONTINUE READING
