Aiming at the complicated cleaning environment of high-voltage substation insulators,the cleaning robot design principles are put for ward.On this basis,the structure framework of cleaning robot is proposed,and its system composition is introduced,mainly including mobile mechanism,clamping mechanism and cleaning mechanism.The structure has the characteristics of light weight,small size and self-locking without motor.Pro/E software is used to complete the modeling of the cleaning robot.Finally,ADAMS is used to establish the simulation model for the cleaning robot,its moving and cleaning process on high-voltage substation insulators is simulated,and the simulation results are analyzed.The results show that the structural design of the cleaning robot is reasonable.
