Modal Analysis of Magnetic Suspended Control Moment Gyroscope
3D finite element models of magnetic suspended control moment gyroscope structure are established by general finite element analysis software. Initial modal analysis scheme of the MS-CMG structure, in which the frame and gyro-chamber are analyzed separately, is described. A new modal analysis scheme that the MS-CMG is analyzed as a whole structure is presented. The connection between the gyro-chamber and frame is realized by defining a revolution pairs. The numerical predictions from two modal analysis schemes show obvious difference. The new scheme is more reliable since it simulates the real wok status of MS-CMG.
