The combined harmonic drive (HD) gearing is a class of differential gears composed of traditional and HD gears. In this paper, the kinematic analysis and enumeration of these less known gear devices are discussed. In particular, a new graph-based method of kinematic analysis has been developed. In order to stimulate the diffusion and applications of combined HD gearing, an atlas of structurally nonisomorphic gear trains has been compiled.
