In this paper the modeling of a novel moving cable robot is conducted considering the vibration of the cables in its nonlinear format. The robot has 6 DOFs while the controlling input number is 12. Considering the fact that the elasticity of the cables is coupled with the dynamic model of the system, their vibration effects on the robot performance and accuracy. The target of this paper is to model the robot considering the cables’ elasticity and study its effect on the robot performance. This study can be considered in designing the controller of tower cranes and decrease the swing of the cables and increasing their stability. In order to cover the mentioned aim, the continuous vibration of the cables are modeled as a nonlinear system and it is added to the moving platform dynamics. Moreover the differences between the nonlinear modeling of the cables’ vibration and estimating them as a linear system is studied and their related results are compared and analyzed. The correctness of modeling is shown by comparing the results with previous research and the superiority of modeling the cables’ vibration in its nonlinear format is verified by the aid of a series of simulation scenarios in MATLAB. Moreover, by conducting some experimental test on the manufactured moving cable robot of IUST, it is illustrated that, modeling the cables in these robots as a nonlinear system results in more accurate results. It is shown that not only considering the cables’ vibration is significant in analyzing the robot dynamic, but also it is shown that promoting the mentioned model into nonlinear one increase the accuracy of the robot modeling which sequentially can provide a stronger controller for stabilizing and controlling the end-effector within a predefined trajectory.
