By reducing the mass of the moving parts, the energy required to accelerate the parts is also proportionately reduced.

Beyond the 150 percent full-load torque point, however, the torque-per-amp ratio is Electric Motors and Controls no longer proportional. For this case, 251 percent breakdown torque would require 330 percent current. Adjustable frequency controllers are typically rated for a maximum of 100 percent continous or 150 percent for one minute of the controller full-load current. This would generally provide a maximum of 100 percent or 150 percent of motor full-load torque. This would not, however, provide the same amount of torque as the motor could potentially develop if it were operated from utility power, which could normally provide as much current as the motor required.

Planetary gears with rotating annuli are shown in Figure 2-11. Here, the stationary planet carder with the three planets is fixed to the gear casing, and the internal tooth annulus connected with the low-speed shaft rotates. Input and output shafts rotate in opposite directions. It should be noted that Figures 2-10 and 2-11 show the gearing with helical teeth, whereas Figure 2-9 illustrates spur gears incorporated in the epicyclic package. The reason for frequently using helical gears is perhaps best explained by reviewing their precursor, stepped gears.
