The Generalized Lever is a new tool in gear train representation. It extends the traditional concept of a lever representation of a planetary gear set to one that includes negative lever ratios. This allows an exhaustive permutation of the nodes of a lever, thereby leading to all possible topological arrangements of a planetary gear train. Consequently, we achieve a compact representation of large families of planetary gear trains, which would otherwise have to be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
