Anti-resonance and Vibration Suppression Application in Servo Systems
7/2/2010  Post a comment
Vibrations, resonances, and oscillations can cause problems in a servo-motor application. But when you turn down the control-loop gains, the driven machine responds more slowly. So what do you do when the tuning gains that run the machine with fast settling time cause it to screech and oscillate out of control?
