P1-13 A passenger elevator for an office build- ing can lift its maximum rated load of 7000 lb at a rate of 60 ft/min (Fig. 1-9) Find the service factor for the drive, which consists of an electric motor and a worm gear speed reducer. Select a mo- tor. (Hint: Use Eq. 1-9, Fig. 1-6, and Tables 1-2 and 1-3.)

By passing through the frst TABLE 1-2 Mechanical Efficier Typical Values member, E loses a small amount of energy and thereby reduces the output to (e)(E). The output of the first member becomes the input of the second member. Again, energy is lost, and the output of the second member (e)(e2)(E) be- comes the input of the third member.

Find the efficiency of the drive system 1-7 POWER Power is the rate of doing work or transmitting energy. The SI power unit is the watt (W). Be- cause the watt is such a small unit, the kilowatt (1000 W) is preferred in most technical calcu- lations. With proper units, the power equations SOLUTION 7 Using values from Table 1-2 in Eq. 1-5, we| obtain: ku14 P 1000 Tn 9550 e (0.9850.96) 0.92 kW Efficiency can be measured directly or calcu lated, but it can also be evaluated by means of noise or heat generated. Although not always recognized, noise represents an excellent me dium for evaluating machine performance. En ergy expended in unwanted machine motion or vibration reduces the useful output and results in noise. Generally, the condition of least noise corresponds to minimum loss in efficiency and 1000 33,000 (1-10) 63,000 1-8 where P- power; kW, hp F - force; N, lb minimum wear.

Smoothly running power sources based on rotary motion are replaced by reciprocating engines The starting load becomes heavier and the number of starts increases. The frequency of full-load conditions and shock phenomena increases Only the curves for sensitivities have a nega- tive slope, thus effectively indicating relative smoothness of operation for the seven most com- mon means of power transmission.
