The gear-teeth number synthesis of an automatic planetary transmission used in automobiles is formulated as a constrained optimization problem that is solved with the aid of an Estimation of Distribution Algorithm. The design parameters are the teeth number of each gear, the number of multiple planets and gear module, while the objective function is defined based on the departure between the imposed and the actual gear ratios, constrained by teeth-undercut avoidance, limiting the maximum overall diameter of the transmission and ensuring proper planet spacing.
