- The development of a two dimensional analytical model that describes the dynamics of an n-mass vertical tethered system is reported. Two different approaches are described: in the first one the control quantities are the independent variables while in the second one the Cartesian coordinates of each mass expressed in the orbiting reference frame are the independent variables. The latter model was used in the 3-mass version to simulate the dynamics of the tethered system in applications involving the displacement of the middle mass along the tether. In particular, issues related to reproducing predetermined acceleration profiles and g-tuning are reported.
