CHARACTERISTICS OF SYNCHROS

AIM: To study the performance of a synchro pair and to obtain its characteristics.

APPARATUS: 1.Synchro transmitter and receiver kit.
2. Patch cords
3. Multimeter.

CIRCUIT DIAGRAM:

1. a) STUDY OF SYNCHRO TRANSMITTER:

,
THEORY:
A synchro is an electromagnetic transducer, which is used to convert an angular
position of a shaft into an electrical signal. Its construction is similar to that of a three-
phase alternator. The stator is of laminated silicon steel and is slotted for accommodating
a balanced three phase winding, which is concentric coil type and is star connected. The
rotor is of dumb-bell construction and is wound with a concentric coil.

When ever an ac voltage is applied to the rotor of transmitter, by transformer action,
emfs are induced in the stator coils. These emfs are function of rotor angular positions.
The output of transmitter is applied to the stator winding of receiver called Control
transformer. Again by transformer action an error voltage will be induced in rotor
winding and it is a proportional to cosine of the angular displacement of shaft.

1. b) STUDY OF SYNCHRO TRANSMITTER AND RECEIVER PAIR:

Synchro is essentially a transformer, in which the coupling between the windings may
be varied by rotating one winding. The fixed winding is wound in the iron slots of the
laminated iron stack called stator, while the rotating winding is wound on a laminated iron
stack, mounted on a shaft, forming the rotor. A Synchro transmitter consists of a single phase
rotor magnetically coupled to a 3-phase Y-connected stator. When an ac voltage is applied to
the rotor, voltages are induced in each of the stator phases.
These induced voltages vary directly, as the sine of the angle between the actual rotor
position and a zero reference position. When the three stator leads of the transmitter A are
connected to the Y-connected stator of a second synchro B, these voltages produce a
resultant stator field in the second synchro, having the same angular orientation with respect
to its zero reference as the transmitter rotor. When the second synchro, B has its single
phase rotor winding connected to the same power supply that energizes the transmitter rotor,
the rotor aligns itself to the same angle as the transmitter rotor. The synchro, B is called a
When the rotor of transmitter is rotated through an angle , the rotor of control
transformer is rotated through an angle .The net angular displacement =90-(+).

THEORY:
The motors that are used in servo systems are called as DC Servomotors. In these
motors the rotors inertia is made small in order to get good torque to weight ratio. DC
servomotors with relatively smaller power rating is used in instruments and disc drives tape
drives printers and word processors. Large rated dc servomotors are used in robot systems
and numerically operated milling machine. The DC servomotors are either field controlled
or armature controlled. The time constant of field controlled DC servomotors are large
when compared to armature controlled dc servomotors. Also the maintenance of constant
armature current is difficult so armature controlled dc servomotors are preferred.

The objective of the system is control the position of Mechanical Load in accordance
with the reference position .A pair of Potentiometers act as error detecting device. They
convert the input and output Positions into proportional electrical signals. The difference
between the input and output Angular positions is the error signal given by e= r - c.

The potential difference
v c r
e e e is the error voltage and is amplified by the error
amplifier. Then this voltage is applied to the armature of the circuit of dc motor. A fixed dc
voltage is applied to the field Winding. If an Error exists then the motor rotates and develops
a torque in such a way that the error is reduced to zero.

Now the transfer function in the feed forward path of the system is

PID CONTROLLER

The PID trainer is to study the characteristics of the feedback control system. The
speed of the DC motor is controlled by the PID (proportional, Integral and Derivative)
controller method. The output of the controller then adjusts the value of each variable in the
control system until it is equal to predetermined value called a set point. The system
controller must maintain each variable as close as possible to its set point value and it must
compensate as quickly and accurately as possible for any change in the variable caused by
the motor.

Pragati Engineering College, EEE Dept. Page No.:
PROPORTIONAL FEEDBACK (P GAIN):
Amplifier produces simple DC feedback proportional to the difference between the
set point and the potential divider output. This is exactly the effect as the voltage divider
output. This is proportional feedback. It will correct for most of the effect of the increased
load, but, there will always some residual error.

INTEGRAL FEEDBACK (I GAIN):

The cure for residual error is to use some integral feedback. Amplifier in the above
figure provides this type of feedback. This circuit produces a ramp on its output whenever a
voltage is applied to its input. For example here the integral will ramp up or down as there
is any error signal present on its input. By ramping up and down just tiny bit about the set
point, the integrator can eliminate most of the residual error. Too much integral feedback,
however, will cause the output to oscillate up and down. Also, feedback slowly affects the
output because the error signal must be present for some time before the integral has much
output.

DERIVATIVE FEEDBACK (D GAIN):

To improve the response time of the system, the above figure supplies a third type of
feedback called derivative feedback. Derivative feedback is a signal proportional to the rate
of change of error signal. If the load is on the system is suddenly changed. The derivative
amplifier circuit will give quick shot of feed back to try to correct the error. When the error
signal is first applied to the differentiator circuit, the capacitor in series with input is not
charged, so it acts like a short circuit. This initially lets a large current flow, so the amplifier
has suitable output. As the capacitor charged the current decreases, so the feedback from
differentiator decreases. The differentiator essentially gives the amplifier a quick pulse of
feedback can cause the system to help correct for the increased load. Too much derivative
feedback can cause the system to overshoot and oscillate.

The point here is that by using a combination of some or all of these types feedback, a
given feedback controlled system can adjusted from optimum response to change in load or
set point. Process control loop that use all three types of feedback are called proportional
integral derivative or PID control loops. Amplifier #5 is summing amplifier adds all the
three controllers.

PROCEDURE:
1. Connect the speed sensor to the socket provided.
2. Connect the motor to the corresponding terminals.

phase plot of each.

APPARATUS:
1. Function generator
2. Phase angle meter
3. AC voltmeter
4. Component expo board
5. Multimeter
6. Lead and Lag Network boards.

CIRCUIT DIAGRAM:

THEORY:

Every control system is designed for a specific application has to meet certain
performance specification setting the gain is the first step in adjusting the system for
satisfactory performance. In many practical cases, however the adjustment of the gain alone
may not provide sufficient alteration of the system behavior to meet the given performance.
As is the frequently the case, increasing the gain value will improve the steady state behavior
but result in poor stability or instability. It is then necessary to redesign the system in order to
alter the overall behavior so that the system will behave as desired.
As additional device is inserted in the system for such purpose is called a
COMPENSATOR. This device compensates for deficient performance of the original system.
If the components G(s) is placed in series with the unaltered transfer function G(s). Then the
compensation is called series compensation. If the compensator is placed in feedback
compensation. In general series compensation may be simple than feedback compensation.
However the series compensation frequently requires additional amplifier to increase the gain
or provide isolation. Numerous physical devices are used as compensators. Among the many
compensators the widely used series compensators are the so called lead compensators, lag
compensators, and lead lag compensators. This system is designed to make a detailed study
of these types of compensators. They are usually electrical and consist of R-C networks and
amplifiers. We shall study compensating networks in the form of electrical R-C networks.
This proposed study of compensators will be done in the following fashion.

TEMPARATURE CONTROL USING PID CONTROLLER

AIM: To study temperature control using PID controller.

APPARATUS: Temperature control using PID controller kit & Oven.

CIRCUIT DIAGRAM:

SET TEMP

RUN TEMP

THEORY:
The function of the controllers is to increase the gain without decreasing the
damping ratio. Controllers can be introduced in feedback or forward path to control the
steady state error and transient performance. The PID trainer is to study the characteristics of
the feedback control circuit. A PID controller consists of a P controller, I controller & a D
controller in one unit. The temperature of the process is controlled by the PID (proportional,
Integral and Derivative) controller method. The output of the controller then adjusts the value
of each variable in the control system until it is equal to predetermined value called a set
point. The system controller must maintain each variable as close as possible to its set point
value and it must compensate as quickly and accurately as possible for any change in the
variable caused by the process.

PROCEDURE:
1. Connect the temperature sensor from oven to the socket provided at the PID controller.
2. Connect the oven to the socket provided at the PID connector.
3. Switch on the Power supply
4. Set required temperature say 50

THEORY:
A magnetic amplifier is a device for obtaining power amplification. It is, just like the
rotating amplifiers is rugged and do not require any heater powder (for cathode). Its added
advantage is that it has no moving parts. But its power handling capacity is generally less.
Magnetic amplifiers are used to amplify dc or very low frequency signals.

Magnetic amplifier is based on the electromagnetic induction and no active element like
vacuum tube, transistor or FET is used in this amplifier. The advantage of magnetic amplifier is a
long life and can operate for years together without using any maintaince requirements. The basic
principle of operation of magnetic amplifier is that the increment permeability of magnetic
material can be controlled by the application of steady (DC) magnetic field. The primary is
usually called the dc or control winding and the secondary is referred to as the o/p winding. The
ac output may be rectified so that it may now be regarded as a dc amplifier.

The simple saturable reactor consists of two electric circuits connected by magnetic
circuit, so that the operating characteristics of any one circuit effect the operation of all the
interconnected circuits. In figure d-c current in the control loop flows through windings N
1
which
establish the d-c flux in one direction in the magnetic circuit loop. Since an a-c source connected
in the load loop, a-c current flows through winding N
2
, establishing the flux in the magnetic
circuit loop is constantly changing in magnitude and direction.

Within the magnetic core there now exist two types of flux:
(1) d-c, the flux created by dc current which is constant in magnitude and constant in direction.
This means the field builds up and remains steady-state.
(2) a-c, the flux created by a-c current which is changing in magnitude and changing in direction.
This means the field builds up to a maximum in the opposite direction.

The a-c flux tends to saturate and then desaturate the core because of its cyclical
operation. This results in changing inductive reactance in the load winding. The d-c flux in its
saturable or desaturable effects in the core. Hence, the d-c flux tends to control the a-c flux
controlling the reactor of the load winding. The use of separate winding on a single core has
2
consists of comparatively few turns of heavy wire because
of large current requirements of different loads. Control winding N
1
consists of many turns of
fine wire. Since mmf depends upon the number of ampere- turns, a small current in control
winding produces a mmf equal to that of the load winding.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AC SERVOMOTOR

AIM: To draw the characteristics of ac servomotor.

APPARATUS: 1. AC Servomotor Kit
2. Multimeter

CIRCUIT DIAGRAM:

THEORY:
AC servomotor is basically a two phase induction motor and consists of two stator
windings oriented 90degrees apart both in time and space when voltages of equal rms
magnitude and 90 degrees phase difference are applied a synchronously rotating magnetic
field of constant magnitude is Set up in the stator. The two Windings are called as reference
and control windings.
The direction of rotating magnetic field depends upon the phase relationship between
the control voltage and reference voltage. As the field sweeps over the rotor, emfs are
induced Producing current in the rotor circuit. The interaction between rotating magnetic
field and the induced currents produce torque, causing the motor to rotate in the direction of
field. In normal induction motors X/R ratio is generally kept high so as to obtain the

MATLAB stands for matrix laboratory. IN industry MATLAB is the tool of choice for high
productivity research development and analysis. MATLAB provides an interactive
environment with hundreds of reliable and accurate built in mathematical functions. These
functions provide solutions of broad range of mathematical problems including matrix
algebra, complex, arithmetic and linear systems.

MATLAB is also capable of executing sequence of commands that are stored in files,
known as script files or M-files. By opening new blank file opens the edit window. A
program can be written and saved in the ASCII format with a file name having the extension
.m in the directory where MATLAB runs.
To run the program, click on the command window and file name without .m extenxion at the
MATLAB command>>. We can view the text edit window, another type of M file is a
function file. A function provides a convienent way to encapsulate some computation, which
can be used without worrying about its implementation.
