The article "Monitoring Concept Study for Aerospace Power Gearbox Drivetrain" appeared in the August 2020 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
Rolls-Royce is pioneering the UltraFan engine family architecture containing a planetary gearbox in a power range of 15 to 80 megawatts. To increase the efficiency of the UltraFan, a planetary gearbox is introduced between fan and intermediate pressure compressor. This enables running the turbine to rotate faster and allows a reduced fan speed.
