This paper extends previous analytical models of simple, single-stage planetary gears to compound, multi-stage planetary gears. This model is then used to investigate the structured vibration mode and natural frequency properties of compound planetary gears of general description, including those with equally-spaced planets and diametrically opposed planet pairs. The well-defined cyclic structure of simple, single-stage planetary gears is shown to be preserved in compound, multi-stage planetary gears. The vibration modes are classified into rotational, translational, and planet modes and the unique properties of each type are examined and proved for general compound planetary gears. All vibration modes fall into one of these three categories. For most cases, both the properties of the modes and the modes themselves are shown to be insensitive to relative planet positions between stages of a multi-stage system.
