Power transmission entropy

Abstract: Mechanical transmissions have been characterised traditionally by their transmission efficiencies. This is given by the ratio of the output to the input of the transmitted power. Unfortunately, the power transmission phenomenon is slightly more complex than that. As any designer would agree, each of these transmission localities is a source of uncertainty. Once formulated, this statement of uncertainty would reflect the designer's trust in the transmission. By virtue of the proposed approach, power transmission is no longer a deterministic entity but becomes a probabilistic one. This paper discusses the overlooked uncertainty inherent in every transmission.
