Power transmission is one of the main components for a wind turbine. Transmission of power from a source, such as an engine or motor, through a machine to an output actuation is one of the most common machine tasks. The design of a system to transmit power requires attention to the design and selection of individual components such as gears, bearings, shaft and many more. The goal of this project is to produce water pumping wind turbine power transmission design by using Solidworks version 2005 which is computer aided design (CAD) software. The suitable gear selection is important so that the output speed of the wind turbine will be able to operate the reciprocating pump.
