Mathematical formulation for computing energy of a n-link revolute joint robot manipulator

In kinematics analysis of a robot manipulator, utmost importance is given to evaluate the energy required for making a robotic arm move from one position to another for accomplishing any task. Here, a general formulation is derived to evaluate the energy of an n-link robot manipulator. The analysis has taken into consideration the mass of each link, their centroid positions, angular speed and dimensional parameters. Compared to link specific conventional methods, it gives a general framework for computing both the kinetic and potential energy of a robot manipulator.

The analytical expressions derived for computing energy are:
