Planetary gear: compact and quiet operation.

 

Planetary gears are designed to offer high gear ratios and high torques. Their moment of inertia is low and they are extremely smooth running. Because of this and their compact design they are often used where space is at a premium. For instance in pitch drives or as main gears for Wind Turbine Generator Systems.
