MODELLING OF TRACTOR-POTATO PLANTER COMBINATION DYNAMICS IN ASPECT OF VEHICLE MOTION STEERABILITY
The paper presents a mathematical model concept, which may be used for analyzing the behavior of tractor agricultural machine combinations at the preliminary design stages. The model is based on 2D so called bicycle models (two-wheeled) that are often referred to in the literature, but it is significantly modified because third axle was added. The model has been applied to a tractor potato planter combination. The measurements of behavior tractor - potato planter combination during traffic were conducted to model parameters identification. The modern, specially worked out apparatus kit was using during test. Obtained results enable to estimate influence of tractor potato planter combination parameters on its behavior on the road.
