The modeling of mechanical power transmission systems comprising rotors, shafts and bearing assemblies will be considered. Spatially dispersed elements, with significant distributed inertia and stiffness characteristics, will be included in the system descriptions. Relatively concentrated units will be modeled using conventional lumped parameter techniques. Compact, accurate analytical models in impedance and admittance form will be derived enabling the investigation of the combined distributed-lumped system’s, torsional response dynamics. The performance of the system under open and closed -loop conditions will be illustrated via computer studies. Typical mechanical drive application will be presented.
