The 40 kg load on the rope accelerates from 0 to 50km / h in 6 seconds.
The rope is tightened with a force of 500kg while the whole assembly is on it. The middle pulley is driven by a dc motor.
I want to calculate the optimum angle between the middle (drive) pulley and the end pulley (pulley 2 on the picture) for driving without slipping or without too much load on the motor.
An angle between two pulleys that is too small would cause slippage on the rope, while too big angle would cause a higher load on the motor, and a higher power consumption.
The pulleys are made of aluminum and the rope has a coefficient of friction of 0.1
The current angle between the two pulleys is 15 degrees, as seen in the picture.
Motor spec are: 24V, 3560 oz/in stall torque, 4.3 HP
If you need more information, please ask.
