Understanding PLANETARY GEAR set !
The planetary gear set, also known as the epicyclic gear train, is one of the most important and interesting inventions in engineering. They are great speed variation mechanisms, and are often used in automobiles as a vital part of automatic transmissions. We will explore the secrets of the planetary gear set in this video.

Automatic vs Manual Transmission
Which is better: Manual or Automatic transmission? This debate has been present for the last seven decades. Manual and automatic transmissions are completely different technologies, which use different configurations and principles. One is based on a simple gear pair, while the other is based on a planetary gear set. One uses a torque convertor, while the other uses a clutch pack. We will do a logical comparison of these technologies in this video. We thank our patrons for making LE's educational service sustainable.

HOW IT WORKS: Car Transmission (720p)
This explains the functioning of a gearbox that provides speed and torque conversions from a rotating power source to another device.





Automatic Transmission, How it works ?
We thank our current patrons for saving LE from death. To achieve our goal of 2 video release/ month (addition of one more team member), please support us at Patreon. https://www.patreon.com/LearnEngineering The working of an automatic transmission is best understood with help of a 2D animation. This video demonstrates working of Allison 6 speed transmission in a step by step logical manner. Working of reverse gear is also explained here. A good introduction of planetary gear (epicyclic) set is also given at the introduction.
