This approach can take the phase of harmonic force into consideration，allowing for study of the multi-source offset mechanism. Besides，by virtue of exponential function，the governing equation is derived with regularity. Therefore，this approach can be used by engineers to make an in-depth analysis of the mechanism.［Conclusions］ By employing this approach，it is easier to find out the general law for common and key aspects from complex system to simple system，setting the stage for sophisticated design of the system dynamics.
