Based on the relationship between the fluctuation frequency [[omega].sub.a] and the nominal gear mesh frequency [omega], the input speed fluctuations can be classified into two categorizations: in the first type, the fluctuation frequency [[omega].sub.a] is constant; in the second type, fluctuation frequency [[omega].sub.a] is proportional to the nominal mesh frequency [omega]; that is, [omega] = P[[omega].sub.a], such as the engine speed fluctuation [15,16].
