Explain power transmission systems, Mechanical Engineering

The basic power transmission systems are

1. Belt drive

2. Chain drive and

3. Gear drives.

Belt drive is commonly used for transmission of power when exact velocity ratio is not needed. There are basically two types of belt drives, Flat belt and V-belt. Flat belts are used when the distance among the shafts is more and only moderate amount of power is to be
