The structured properties of the critical speeds and associated critical speed eigenvectors of high-speed planetary gears are given. Planetary gears have only planet, rotational, and translational mode critical speeds. Divergence instability is possible at speeds adjacent to critical speeds. Numerical results verify the critical speed locations. Divergence and flutter instabilities are investigated numerically for each mode type.
