Abstract:

The equations of a single loop of wire moving in a time varying magnetic field are used to derive the signal flow graph of individual electrical machine windings. The signal flow graphs of the windings are interconnected to form the signal flow graphs of various electrical machines and the signal flow graphs of the machines are interconnected to form the signal flow graph of a complete servosystem. System-ATIC INTERCONNECTION OF COMPONENT FLOW GRAPHS IS MADE POSSIBLE BY THE USE OF CONJUGATE VARIABLES TO DESCRIBE THE POWER FLOW BETWEEN COUPLED COMPONENTS. The resulting signal flow graph of the servosystem involves 13 feedback loops. Partial factoring and numerical approximations are used to simplify evaluation of critical frequencies from the system flow graph. Author
