In the design of a system consisting of a motor driving an inertial load through gearing it is often necessary that the acceleration of the load be a maximum. The gear ratios giving a maximum acceleration are determined here either for a specified over-all train ratio, or for the condition where the over-all ratio must be found. Charts, which embody certain simplifying assumptions, are provided for selecting the optimum number of gear ratios and the ratios of the individual meshes corresponding to maximum load acceleration.
