Abstract:

A detailed analysis of an ac rate servomechanism is presented. The actual performance of the servo is compared to the desired performance. Two mathematical models of the servo are constructed from experimental data. The first model is the usual linear model using Laplace transforms the second model is a quasi-linear model which includes a describing function representing the acceleration limiting of the servomotor. From the models the sensitivity and stability of the servomechanism are calculated. Certain limitations of the models are pointed out. A large amount of experimental data is presented in graphical form. Author
