The concept of virtual slider crank mechanism is proposed and decoupled to obtain parameters of controllable five bar mechanism without any principle error for any given trajectory. The model is simple and easy to solve. This method has no convergence, flexible workspace and singularity of the mechanism problem. Through this method,we don't need any curve to fit the trajectory point. Using MATLAB program to calculate, the computation time can be reduced to less than 3% of the original. Finally, an example is given to illustrate the method which is meanwhile compared with the traditional five bar design method.
Key words:    hybrid-driven five-bar mechanism    virtual crank slider mechanism    decoupling algorithm
