Abstract

A pair of centrifugal pendulum vibration absorbers (CPVA's) riding on half-order epicycloidal paths have recently been found to be very effective at reducing torsional vibration levels in a rotating system that is subjected to a harmonic external torque. Previous analyses of this system have assumed perfectly manufactured and exactly tuned paths for the absorber masses. The primary goal of this study is to explore the effects that manufacturing and other imperfections and intentional mistunings have on the performance of this absorber system. To this aim, the equations of motion are first derived for a simplified model. The basic system has two and a half degrees of freedom with a one-to-one internal resonance and two-to-one resonant external excitation. Utilizing the method of averaging, the steadystate solutions are obtained and used to evaluate the absorber performance via two performance indices: the rotor acceleration and the applicable range of the disturbing torque. Finally, some guidelines are provided for designers in terms of how one should choose and/or control intensional mistuning and imperfections of the absorber paths.
