This paper formulates the inverse static analysis of planar compliant mechanisms in polynomial form. The goal is to find the equilibrium configurations of the system in response to a known force/moment applied to the mechanism. The geometric constraint of the linkage defines a set of kinematics equations which are combined with equilibrium equations obtained from partial derivatives of the potential-energy function. In order to apply polynomial homotopy solver to these equations, we approximate the linear torsion spring torque at each joint by using sine and cosine functions. The results obtained from the homotopy solver are then refined using Newton-Raphson iteration. To demonstrate the analysis steps, we study two example planar compliant mechanisms, a four-bar linkage with two torsional springs, and a parallel platform supported by three linear springs. Numerical examples are provided together with plots of the potential energy during a movement between selected equilibrium positions.
