Advantages of V-belt drive :
Positive drive as slip between belt and pulley is negligible.No joint troubles as V-belt are made endless.Operation is smooth and quiet.High-velocity ratio up to 10 can be obtained.It can be easily installed and removed.Due to wedging action in the grooves, limiting ratio of tensions is higher and thus, more power transmission.It may be operated in either direction with a tight side at the top or bottom.Multiple V-belt drives increase the power transmission manifold.Slip between the belt and the pulley is negligible.The axis can be vertical or horizontal or inclined.They can dampen vibration.
Disadvantages of V-belt drive : It can not be used for large centre distances.In V-belt construction of pulleys is not simple.V-belt is not as durable as a flat belt.It costlier as compared to the flat belt.V-belt drive can't be used for long distances due to a greater weight per unit of length.It may be not applicable to synchronous machines because they are not free from creep.The centrifugal tension prevents the use of belts at speeds below 5 m/s and above 50 m/s.
