Dynamic Analysis of Gough-Stewart Platform Manipulator

Abstract

A novel derivation to evaluate all the controlled forces which cause by the motors and effected along the prismatic joints on the legs of the Gough-Stewart platform manipulator based on the virtual work method is proposed in this paper. In this paper the manipulator can be considered as a multibody mechanism with rigid elements. It can be assumed that the manipulator motion was known. The aim of the dynamic analysis in this paper is to evaluate all the controlled forces which necessary to implement the manipulator programming motion
