Research on the Installed Position of the Cutting Device of a Small-Scale Sugarcane Harvester Using Virtual Prototype Technology
The size of small-scale sugarcane harvester is decided by installation position of the cutting device of it. In this paper , Several simulation experiments were made by established a virtual prototype of sugarcane cutting system, and the relationship between the effect of holding sugarcane(measured by angle) and the installed position of cutting disk with different forward speed and different rotational speed was researched, and propose that the rotation speed of sugarcane holding device and forward speed of harvester influence the installed position of the cutting device by analyzing the data from virtual experiment. At last, a empirical regression equation which indicate the relationship among rotation speed of sugarcane holding device (n), forward speed of harvester (v) and the installed position is given.
