In this work a dynamic model of a planetary gear transmission is developed to study the sensitivity of the natural frequencies and vibration modes to system parameters in perturbed situation. Parameters under consideration include component masses ,moment of inertia , mesh and support stiff nesses .The model admits three planar degree of freedom for planets ,sun, ring, and carrier. Vibration modes are classified into translational, rotational and planet modes .Well-defined modal properties of tuned (cyclically symmetric) planetary gears for linear ,time-invariant case are used to calculate eigensensitivities and express them in simple formulae .These formulae provide efficient mean to determine the sensitivity to stiffness ,mass and inertia parameters in perturbed situation.
