Introduction

The objective of this project is to design a controller that levitates the steel ball

from the post and keeps it stably levitating. The maglev system can be decomposed

into two subsystems, viz. a mechanical subsystem and an electrical subsystem

(current loop). The ball position in the mechanical subsystem can be controlled by

adjusting the current through the electromagnet whereas the current through the

electromagnet in the electrical subsystem can be controlled by applying controlled

voltage across the electromagnet terminals. Thus, the voltage applied across the

electromagnet provides an indirect control of the ball position.

Robust feedback control for magnetic levitation systems is considered problematic

due to the parametric uncertainties in mass, strong disturbance forces between the

magnets and noise effects inflowing from sensor and input channels. Therefore

robustness is a key issue in designing a control system for a magnetic levitation as

the models are never 100 percent accurate and the uncertainties in the model must

be accounted. In this project, closed loop PID control is investigated to bring the

magnetic levitation system in a stable region by keeping a magnetic ball suspended

in the air in the presence of uncertainties. The project report first presents the

complete non-linear and linear mathematical models and then it adopts the mixed

sensitivity design method for closed loop PID controller synthesis.

We have developed the governing differential equation and the Laplace domain

transfer function models of the electrical and mechanical subsystems. Finally we

will design and implement a Proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller to

ensure that the mechanical subsystem ball position response tracks the desired

position command.

The Magnetic Levitation controller is simulated using SIMULINK in MATLAB.

MATLAB is a high performance software package for scientific and numeric

computation, signal processing and graphics in an environment where problems

and solutions are expressed just as they are written mathematically - without

traditional programming. The power of MATLAB environment is further extended

by Simulink - a block oriented environment for simulation of dynamic systems and

numerous toolboxes.

Levitation is the stable equilibrium of an object without contact and can be

achieved using electric or magnetic forces. In a magnetic levitation, or maglev

system a ferromagnetic object is suspended in air using electromagnetic forces.

These forces cancel the effect of gravity, effectively levitating the object and

achieving stable equilibrium. The model of magnetic levitation shown in Figure 1

consists of a coil levitating a steel ball in magnetic field. The position of the steel

ball is sensed by an inductive linear position sensor connected to A/D converter.

Mathematical Model

Consider a schematic of maglev plant and its electromagnetic network model as

shown in Figure.

Apply Kirchhoffs voltage law in electrical system network.

di

= + u(t) = iR + L(x) ( )

dt

where u, i, R and L are applied voltage input, current in the electromagnet coil,

coils resistance and coils inductance respectively.

Energy stored in the inductor can be written as

Since,

Power in electrical system (Pe) = Power in the mechanical system (Pm)

and

Where, Kc=electromagnet force constant, x=actual air gap between core face and

ball surface.

If Fm is electromagnetic force produced by input current, Fg is the force due to

gravity and F is net force acting on the ball, the equation of force can be written as

=

we get,

Where,

(1)

x(t) - ball position [m]

Mk - mass of ball [kg]

Kc - coil constant [A/V]

x0 - coil offset [m]

g - gravity constant [m/s-2]

kfv - damping constant [N/m.s].

Position of the ball in the magnetic field is controlled by electric current i(t), which

is generated from the power amplified. The power amplified is designed as a

source of constant current and is described by transfer function Fz :

=

()

=

() + 1

Where,

I(s) - Laplace of electric current i(t)

U(s) - Laplace of input voltage u(t)

Ki - coil and amplified gain [A/V]

Ta - coil and amplified time constant [s]

The signal incoming from inductive sensor for communication with surrounding is

necessary adjusted for further processing and therefore D/A resp. A/D converter is

added into mathematical model. The converters can be described by linear

equations:

D/A converter : () = ()

A/D converter : () = ()

Where,

u(t) - converter output voltage [V]

uMU(t) - converter input voltage [MU]

kDA - converter gain [V/MU]

u0 - converter offset [V]

yMU(t) - converter output voltage [MU]

y(t) - converter input voltage [V]

kAD - converter gain [MU/V]

yMU0 - converter offset [MU]

By, taking Laplace transform of equation (1), the following model for magnetic

levitation is designed.

The detailed model is based on the simple model, but in addition to this the

influence of input amplifier dynamics, limits of the ball movements and ball

damping is taken into account. To model the limits, model constants have to vary

according to the ball position.

Where,

kfl - limit constant - elasticity

kdl - limit constant damping

for x < 0

for 0 <x < 1

for x > l

Applying the limits to our originally designed model, we get the Magnetic

levitation model as shown in the figure.

Consider the closed-loop feedback system shown in Figure, where GR(s) is

transfer function of a PID controller; GP(s) is a transfer function of the real plant;

w, e, u and y are the reference, control error, manipulated variable and output of

the plant signals, respectively.

() = +

(1 + 1)(2 + 1)

+ = (

)

Where,

() = controller transfer function

Kp= controller proportional constant

Ki =controller integral constant

Kd=controller derivative constant

K= controller gain

Ts1, Ts2= time constants corresponding with controller zeros.

Each of the PID controller blocks (P, I and D) plays an important role. However

for some applications, the integral and derivative part has to be excluded to give

satisfactory results. The Proportional block is mostly responsible for the speed of

the system reaction. However for oscillator plants it might increase the oscillations

if the value of P is set to be too large.

The Integral part is very important and assures zero error value in the steady state,

which means that the output will be exactly what we want it to be. Nevertheless the

integral action of the controller causes the system to respond slower to the desired

value changes.

The Derivative part has been omitted in this project to avoid further slowing of the

system.

For the above shown closed loop control system, transfer function is given by
