This paper simulates the dynamic behavior of the operating mechanism of ACB, and analyzes factors influencing the mechanism's operating time. First, it builds a dynamic model for the mechanism with virtual prototype technology. Experiment validation is carried out to prove the correctness of the model. Based on this model, it puts emphasis on analyzing the influence of electro-dynamic repulsion force on the operating time of the mechanism. Simulation and experimental results show that after adding electric repulsion force to the model, the operating time is shortened about 1.1 ms. Besides the repulsion force, other influencing factors including the stiffness of opening spring, locations of every key axis, mass and centroidal coordinates of every mechanical part are analyzed as well. Finally, it makes an optimum design for the mechanism. After optimization, the velocity of operating mechanism is improved about 6.7%.
