Definitions

Accuracy

This term defines the ability of the controlled

axes to position an object in a spatial domain.

(how close you can come to the bulls-eye).

Another definition is the ability to reach a

predetermined point in space.

Resolution

Resolution is defined as resolving by the

breaking into parts.

The action of a rotary or linear feedback device

used for control purposes.

Repeatability

The ability to exactly replicate or reproduce a

motion profile as a continuous operation.

This term defines the ability of the controlled

axes to position the controlled object after

several moves

6

Definitions

Position Error

The dynamic difference between the position commanded by the controller

and the actual position of the object being moved.

Position Loop

The controller algorithm correcting the difference between the controller

commanded position and the feedback from the controlled axes used to

determine actual position

Speed or Velocity Loop

This loop is typically located in a drive. The function of the loop is to output

the motor torque required to maintain the speed/velocity commanded to the

drive amplifier.

Torque (current) Loop

The loop in the drive amplifier that is responsible for controlling the torque

producing current by comparing the motor actual shaft position (incremental

shaft position is integrated within the controller to determine the shaft

speed/velocity) to the actual shaft position.

7

When is Motion Control Required?

Rule of Thumb: Accuracy of motor shaft less than

5 degrees or linear movement less than .0001.

Precise Control of Speed

Rule of Thumb: Speed regulation of .05% or better

Rapid Acceleration and Deceleration Requirements

Rule of Thumb: Motor acceleration from 0 to 2000 rpm in

less than .5 sec.

Control of Torque

Ability to provide full torque at 0 rpm.

has the capability for accurate and repeatable control of one or more of the following

dynamic parameters

Rare Earth vs. Ferrite Motors

Rare Earth Magnets (Samarium Cobalt or Neodymium-Iron-Boron)

Ceramic Magnets (Ferrite)

Rare Earth Motors fall into two categories:

Medium Inertia Motors

Low Inertia Motors

Rare Earth Magnets considerations.

Lower inertia means higher theoretical acceleration

Stability and Bandwidth become an important consideration

Proper System inertia sizing becomes very critical

Do not exceed 6 to 1 system to rotor inertia (3 to 1 in critical/contouring applications)

when using standard encoder or resolver feedback

20

Rare Earth vs. Ferrite Motors

Rare Earth Advantages:

Excellent magnetic properties (up to 30 MGOe).

Lower rotor inertia.

Smaller motor sizes for a given torque

Effective where high response speed, quick acceleration, high

efficiency and small size are required.

Rare Earth Disadvantages:

Magnetic material is expensive.

Samarium Cobalt and Neodymium material has a limited supply

(only available in a few areas of the world).

The system inertia must also be low (within at least 6 to 1 of motor

inertia). BEWARE! BEWARE! Inertia mismatch means stability

and control problems. System sizing is very critical. (High

resoultion feedback can help expand the range)

21

Rare Earth vs. Ferrite Motors

Low cost magnetic material

Virtually unlimited availability

May be easier to match the motor to a system due to inertia.

Ferrite Motor Disadvantages:

Inferior magnetic properties (~4 MGOe). More material required to

provide the same flux.

Larger frame size and higher inertia per given torque.

Torque to Rotor Inertia Comparison (Rule of Thumb)

The Rare-Earths ratio of Torque to Rotor Inertia is about 4 times

higher than the standard Ferrite motor.

39

Application Considerations

Is the machine moving material in space where there is no

concern about path accuracy?

In this case torque is the primary concern.

Why am I concerned about inertia mismatch?

What is the customers primary concern?

An application that resists external disturbances during a move

select a motor with higher inertia

Not paying for KW that is simply used to get the motor moving

This was one of the first criteria in the development of rare earth motors

(high torque and very low inertia)

40

Gearing Drawbacks

Reduces system efficiency

Reduces output speed

requires higher motor speed

Can increase audible noise

Increases cost

41

Speed Reduction

Where:

VM = Motor Speed(RPM) = 500 RPM

VO = Output Speed(RPM) = 50 RPM

Z = Gearbox Ratio = 10:1

Torque Multiplication

times the gearbox efficiency: TO = TM x Z x e

Where:

TO = Output Torque(In-Lb) = 90 In-Lb

TM = Motor Torque(In-Lb) = 10 In-Lb

Z = Gearbox Ratio = 10:1

e = Gearbox Efficiency(%) = 90 %

You cannot exceed the gearbox output torque specification!

Inertia Matching

system inertia divided by the square of the gearbox ratio:

JREF =JL/Z2

Where:

JL = System inertia(In-Lb-Sec2) = 2 In-Lb-Sec2

JREF = Reflected inertia(In-Lb-Sec2) = 0.5 In-Lb-Sec2

It is important to first determine whether the application is

Things to Remember

required by each application.

Triangular profiles are limited by the maximum speed of

the system.

Trapezoidal profiles can be used when maximum speed

is a limitation.

Trapezoidal profiles are limited by the maximum

acceleration of the system.

S-Curve and Parabolic profiles have smoother speed

transitions but require greater acceleration and

deceleration rates.

Inertia

116

Inertia

The product of the weight of an object (W) and the square of

the radius of gyration (K) (how the weight is distributed

around the axis of rotation).

Result = WK2 = Lb - Ft2

The magnitude of inertia is a function fourth power of its

radial dimension. Therefore a small diameter cylindrical rotor

inherently has a much lower inertia than a large diameter

motor.

A smaller Radius part has much less inertia than a larger

radius part.

Double radius - 24 = 16 times the inertia

Triple radius - 34 = 81 times the inertia

Servo System inertias are generally defined as IN-LB-SEC2

117

Inertia

Inertia - Examples:

the object.

126

Backlash Influences

achievable gain

From a previous slide :- If the inertia doubles, the gain can

also be doubled thus restoring the bandwidth

But in the middle of the backlash range, the motor and load

are effectively disconnected, so the gain at this point will be

too high. The effect is severe hammering across the

backlash.

The maximum usable gain is that which would be appropriate

without the load.

135

Inertia Ratio and Backlash

What is the maximum allowable inertia mismatch ?

What is the optimum inertia match ?

The best situation for performance when backlash is present

is a motor that dominates the load :-

Jmotor >> Jload (A high inertia motor helps here)

Even a 1:1 inertia ratio reduces bandwidth by 50%

With a rigidly coupled motor and high resolution feedback

even extreme inertia ratios may perform satisfactorily

137

Coupling and Resonance

coupling, the effect on limiting gain is very similar to that of

backlash so, again, a high inertia motor helps .

At the moment the motor starts to accelerate from rest the

spring is unloaded so the load is effectively disconnected

from the motor.

As the motor moves and winds up the spring the load

inertia is felt by the motor.

Note that compliance may exist in the rotating parts or the

motor mounting.

138

Acceleration Requirements

Typically used in process lines such as calenders, extruders,

Normally select induction motors since high acceleration is not a requirement

Normal Acceleration

several seconds to attain maximum speed

These applications may require more investigation to determine the correct solution

High acceleration -- complete cycle occurs in milliseconds

requires PID or zero following error system

Includes feed forward and integral terms to keep the proportional error near zero.

There is always a small error
