Important Questions of Dynamic Electric:

1. A gear train system used to drive a load is shown in Fig. P2. Assuming the ideal conditions of no back lash and no elastic deformation in the system determine the equivalent inertia and equivalent friction referred to (a) motor shaft, (b) load shaft.

2. Show that the torque to inertia ratios referred to the motor shaft and to the load shaft differ from each other by a factor of N, where N is the gear ratio. Show that the torque squared to Inertia referred to the motor shaft or load shaft are the same.

3. Figure P2 shows a motor lifting a load by means of a winch. The weight lifted is 1500 kg at a velocity of 0.75 m/s. The motor runs at a speed of 1000 rpm. The inertia of the winch drum and motor are 1.8 kg.m2 and 3.6 kg.m2 respectively. Calculate the total load torque of the system referred to motor shaft.

4. Use the considerations of stability to show the equilibrium of operation of the motor at points P1,P2,P3 and P4. If there is a point of instability can you suggest the modification to motor speed torque curve to make the operation stable? Based on the conclusions suggest a method to determine the speed torque curve of the motor in the first, second and fourth quadrants.
