Paper Abstract

The proper design of a control system for use in high demand scanning applications requires the understanding of how the needs of the application dictate the configuration of the system. Once the needs of the application have been defined, those needs can be translated into the required system performance parameters, and subsequently a review to the limits of the performance can commence. This paper discusses the needs of two common applications, high accuracy stepping systems and high speed vector systems. Then, mechanical models of a galvanometer are examined and common limits to performance for each application is discussed. Finally, some approaches to servo amplifier designs which extend performance are reviewed.
