If anyone could help out that would be great,
I'm currently doing my BEng in E and E and for my final year project I am retro fitting VFD and PLC control to a long travel system on a crane(currently uses rotor resistance)

For calculating the correct size DBR one of the values I need is KgM^2 (inertia) I've looked over the old manuals for the crane but can only find KgM for each gearbox (4, 1 each corner) how would I go about calculating the inertia for the crane ?

Sorry if seems a bit vague and thanks in advance

KgM indicates the Max. Torque can be generated by the Gear Box. You can convert this to Newton-meter by multiplying with 9.8 Now this torque is equal to moment of inertia x angular acceleration. You can find moment of inertia using this relation.Try this.
