Position Loop Equation (Kinematics)

  1. Jul 15, 2005 #1
    What will be the position loop equation of the attached file. The system is of Solar Panel Deployment attached to Satellite Body .
    The lengths are
    AB = Yoke = a
    BC=CD=DE = Solar Panles = b

    I have been trying to fine position loop equations (i.e x & y ) in rectangular coordinate system but y loop equation is not achievable.
    Should I try something in Loacal /Global/ Natural coordinate system.

    Two files are attached ....one is of my system's drawing
    Other one is a reference document of analysis of this kind of mechanism which is at
