Abstract

The failure of conventional gearbox is mainly due to breaking of gear teeth, which is removed by using kinematic linkages in eclipse gear box. The force which is traveled from the input shaft to the output shaft, which is mechanically joined to rotor of the generator, is equally distributed by the number of links present in eclipse gear box. The necessity of only one stage instead of multiple stages in conventional gearbox for complete transmission of power improves the reliability of the gearbox. For electricity generation constant output shaft speed is required which is given by eclipse drive train. One gear rotates and provides a circular path for another gear. A rotational gear is attached on high torque shaft. Another gear is engaged with the rotating gear and translates on a circular path. The second gear is attached with linkages to a low torque shaft that resembles a crankshaft.
