This article investigates the vibration response of a planetary gear train under excitations of both deterministic and random loads. A lumped parameter model has been used in this investigation and the random excitations are represented by white noise. One version of the stochastic Newmark algorithms is employed to solve for both sample path response and the statistics of the response. The mean and the variance for all state variables are obtained through the same algorithm. The effects of three different levels of noise on the statistics are compared against each other.
