Abstract: Gears are used to transmit power and rotary motion from the source to its application with or without change of speed or direction. Gears trains are mostly used to transmit torque and angular velocity from one shaft to another shaft, whenever there is large speed reduction requirement within confined space. In epicyclic gear trains there is relative motion between axes which useful to transmit very high velocity ratio with gears of smaller sizes in lesser space. In this research paper torque calculations are done for epicyclic gear train. Input torque, output torque and holding or braking torque are calculated experimentally using experimental set up and analytically using tabular formulas for rpm range starting from 1000 rpm to 2800 rpm. Finally the experimental and analytical torque values are compared which shows error ranging from 6 % to 8% which is due to some frictional losses and mechanical losses.
