Motors perform most efficiently for a single combination of speed and torque. In many applications however, especially in robotics, electrical motors have to drive varying loads at varying speeds, resulting in energy losses. This project aims to reduce losses by studying mechanisms that improve the overall efficiency of the motor-gear system, along with their control strategies.
