Gear adaptive variator is the toothed tranny with the adjustable transfer ratio which is usually adapting to the adjustable loading. Unsuccessful attempts of creation of a gear variator had been undertaken repeatedly. The main problem is-maintenance of constant engagement of cogwheels of a variator. Your choice of this problem can be based on utilization of a kinematic chain with two levels of freedom. Earlier it had been proved that this kinematic chain with shut contour possesses the effect of force adaptation. The apparatus variator can be performed in the kind of the shut differential mechanism. The external variable technical loading changes the transfer ratio itself without any control system. The apparatus variator opens essentially new concept of creation of adaptive engineering for devices with variable technological resistance (for instance, adaptive gearbox of car). The idea of a gear variator is founded on discovery «Effect of drive adaptation in mechanics» which is certainly published in leading editions of world press. In the paper the bases of the idea of a gear adaptive variator are provided.
There are different types of DC drive setups with the designation depending upon the source of their DC current. This is the case in emergency back-up systems. For instance, power plant life have a bank of batteries that supply DC current to emergency oil pumps that supply essential oil to the bearings of a turbine during a crisis shutdown. A second way to obtain DC current could possibly be from a (Variator Gearbox Motor-Generator) MG established. In this instance, the engine drives a DC generator that generates the DC current. These 1st two types of drives provide pure DC current, consequently they do not create any significant electrically induced indicators when it comes to vibration. The last kind of DC drive, and the one which will be discussed in this paper, uses silicon controlled rectifiers (SCRs) to rectify AC current into DC Current. These drives produce a DC signal with AC pulses that match the firing of the SCRs. These pulses or absence thereof in the case of failed SCRs and or gating complications produce vibration signals which can be analyzed to determine the way to obtain the defect. Improper tuning of adjustable speed drives may also generate vibration problems.

Rectification: The first concept that needs to be understood in regards to DC drives is definitely rectification. Rectification is the process of switching AC current into DC current. Pictured below is usually a half wave rectifier and the resulting output. Only the positive section of the current Al passes through the rectifier.
