Cable-driven parallel robots
Dynamic stiffness matrix method
Sagging cable model
This paper focuses on the vibration analysis of Cable-Driven Parallel Robots (CDPRs). An oscillating model of CDPRs able to capture the dynamic behavior of the cables is derived using Lagrangian approach in conjunction with the Dynamic Stiffness Matrix method. Then, an original approach to analyze the modal interaction between the local cable modes and the global CDPR modes is presented. To illustrate this approach, numerical investigations and experimental analyses are carried out on a large-dimension 6-DOF suspended CDPR driven by 8 cables.
