The CAD of Feed Drive Control Systems

  • H. Filiz

Work on a comprehensive CAD package for high performance position and velocity control systems is reported. The structure of the suite of programs is discussed and the principal sectors are outlined. These are the sizing and selection of components, design of the controller using linear analysis and finally the nonlinear time domain performance assessment of the design proposal by simulation. Reference is made to a specific design example to illustrate the value of the CAD suite.
