An analytical, numerical and experimental investigation of the dynamic behavior of a four degree of freedom passive balancing system using pendulum balancers is presented. This work is an extension of previous studies which considered such automatic balancing systems and devices. It has previously been demonstrated analytically that a 4-DOF pendulum self-balancing system is capable, under idealized conditions, of exact radial balancing [10]. However, imperfections in the fabrication and assembly of such a system tend to compromise a number of the ideal modeling assumptions that were used to provide this result. The present research study examines the effects of a variety of such imperfections and their influence on the functional capability of the self-balancing system. Both analytical/simulation results and experimental validation are provided and discussed.
