Paper Abstract

A Position Control Algorithm with interesting features has been used in the design of an electro-mechanical actuator for a particular application where volume and weight limits are extremely tight. Position feedback, non-linear derived rate feedback, a saturable full-time main integrator, an intermittent fast integrator, compensation for mechanical system compliance, and derived acceleration feedback are used in an extension and modification of classical control concepts. The calculating and decision making power of a microcomputer contained in the actuator has been used to significantly improve upon well known control methods for this special case.
