[Aerotech] Loop Transmission - Powerful Servo Tuning

Aerotech's A3200 software controller is pure software, 1-32 axis motion controller can be
integrated laser, under the vision, PLC, and I / O on the same platform. It has many
advanced diagnostic capabilities briefly below Aerotech controllers Special Features: Loop
Transfer (Loop Transmission)
General servo loop, to carry out PID loop of the tuning loop transfer function often
require mathematical computing systems (loop transmission function)
And the open-loop frequency response, phase boundaries obtained (Phase Margin) and
gain boundary (Gain Margin)
After, you can then calculate the optimum PID parameters, the process is complex and
time-consuming mathematical formula to calculate.
Aerotech controllers use standard features within the product line: Loop Transfer (loop
transmission, LT)
Can pattern of the way, simply adjust the gain values to optimize the state of this
feature can dramatically increase system performance, whether entry-level or high-end
users to optimize the system user can even provide High End Applications The user,
circuit modeling (Loop Shaping) function to adjust the gain value system of the best
placed in each location.
Loop Transmission window below shows the main principles of Aerotech controller
contains all of: the input signals of different frequencies into the motor, the motor
current reaction to the image represented below shows common Bode plot (Bode Plot),
this to automatically generate the input signal is above the figure after figure-Fu, which
is the gain (Gain), and the gain limit (GM) will generate a Bode plot below the figure at
the same time automatically calculated phase (Phase), the phase boundaries also in
Bode diagram is generated automatically calculated
Elementary user can:
1. Use the mouse to select a gain limit (GM), this is the Gain = 0 point, the
representative of the input signal strength equal to the output signal strength
This immediate reaction sites for the system, the user will want to at this point of the
corresponding frequency (Gain Crossover Frequency) higher
Very simple drag this point to move to higher frequency throughout the Bode plot, this
action will change the value of all the PID Gain
2. Use the mouse to select the phase boundary (PM), this is the input current and output
current phase difference of 180 degrees (Phase = -180 degrees)
This point represents the system response and input the exact opposite, the user will
want to gain this point is very small (usually must be less than -6 dB)
The user can simply join notch filter (Notch Filter) this point, simply enter the frequency
of this point is to the DFC (Digital Filter Caculator) within
You can filter out the instability, and make a substantial decline in this position gain,
increase system stability.
Filter in uniaxial can add up to eight filters, including High Pass, Low Pass, Notch Filter,
Resonant, lead / lag filters

Below is DFC (Digital Filter Caculator) digital filter calculation program of the picture in
this parameter can be set individually for each filter, the bottom of each change wave
after wave filter content instantly updates may actually before the loop transfer, the
quality of the filtering effect of the pre-view
