FPGA-based rapid control prototyping of permanent magnet synchronous motor servo drives

FPGA-based rapid control prototyping of permanent magnet synchronous motor servo drives

Due to tight time constraints and unknown disturbances, the position control problem in permanent magnet synchronous machine (PMSM) drives remains exceedingly challenging. Download this technical article to learn more about experimental validation of a cascade control structure for position control in PMSM drives.

Speed Up Digital Control Development for Motors, Power Converters, and Battery Systems with Simulink

Speed Up Digital Control Development for Motors, Power Converters, and Battery Systems with Simulink

Digital control design for power electronics using Simulink® makes it easy to try new ideas, test them, and go to hardware without coding. You can use system-level models for desktop simulation, real-time simulation, and production code generation, speeding up designing and testing your power electronics control systems.

Modeling and Analysis of Medium Frequency Transformers for Power Converters

Modeling and Analysis of Medium Frequency Transformers for Power Converters

A mathematical model of a 3-phase medium frequency transformer (MFT) in an isolated DC-DC power converter, suitable for electromagnetic transient and steady-state simulation is developed. The transformer modeling methods are reviewed, and the Lagrange energy method is used to derive a physically motivated model for circuit analysis.

A Lightweight Force-Controllable Wearable Arm Based on Magnetorheological-Hydrostatic Actuators

A Lightweight Force-Controllable Wearable Arm Based on Magnetorheological-Hydrostatic Actuators

This paper studies the feasibility of using magnetorheological (MR) clutches coupled to a low-friction hydrostatic transmission.  This combination provides a highly effective yet lightweight, force-controllable supernumerary robotic arm (SRL). Experimental studies conducted on a one-DOF test bench and validated analytically demonstrate a high force bandwidth (>25 Hz) and an excellent ability to control interaction forces even when interacting with an external impedance.

Active Magnetic Bearing for Ultra-Precision Flexible Electronics Production System

Active Magnetic Bearing for Ultra-Precision Flexible Electronics Production System

Roll-to-roll printing of flexible electronics on continuous plastic films could enable the production of flexible electronics at high speed and low cost. However, rolling element bearings cannot be deployed because of the precision requirements. Instead, active magnetic bearings (AMB) with optical positioning encoder feedback are used.
