  • A gerotor is used in power-steering units (PSUs) as well as in hydraulic motors or pumps. The inner rotor is developed on the basis of the shape of the outer rotor tooth, which normally has one arc. The method of generating inner rotor on the basis of a generalized shape of outer rotor is analyzed with a view to improve PSU characteristics. An arc-shaped outer rotor with two curvatures was used in the analysis; design parameters such as the shape and curvature of the inner rotor, the flow rate of the gerotor, the position of contact point, and slip velocity are calculated, and these results are shown. This analysis enables us to develop a new design of compact PSUs.

  • This study focused on identifying the major noise source in a tractor cabin using experimental methods. The noise levels in a tractor cabin for different engine revolution speeds were analyzed to identify the noise source. The results showed that the power steering unit (PSU) was the major noise source in a tractor cabin. The PSU was moved to the outside from the inside of the cabin in order to reduce the noise in the tractor cabin. As a result, the noise levels on the left and right sides of the operator in the tractor cabin were reduced by 6.8 and 3.9 dB, respectively. Finally, the window method was introduced to evaluate the contribution of the transmission noise. The orders of significance in the tractor noise were the front, bottom, and left area, successively.
