Study on Delta Parallel Mechanism Kinematics and Singularity Based on Inverse Solution
In this paper, the kinematic analysis on a 3-DOF Delta parallel mechanism was carried out and the relationship models between the end cell output motions and the master arms input parameters were established. The forward and inverse solutions to position, velocity and acceleration were deduced and then verified by simulation, the curves that gotten by calculation and simulation were smooth, and no mutations or jumps appeared. In the meantime, based on the kinematic analysis, the impact of Jacobian matrix on the manipulator singular configuration was discussed, and the maneuverability in the reachable space was obtain quantitatively, meanwhile, the value of cond(C(Jv)) was located in the acceptable range, which approached to the isotropic value, so, the theory basis for optimal design was provided. The methods and conclusions in this paper are helpful to the design and control of 3-DOF Delta parallel mechanism.
