Abstract:

This study demonstrates quite conclusively a mathematical technique for dtermining the closed-loop response characteristics of a servo system employing the Curtiss-Wright electromechanical spring clutch as the control device. It has been shown that the closed-loop gain and phase loci arrived at analytically by this technique agree very closely with the actual results obtained from equipment tests. The system bandwidth, which of course in a nonlinear system is a function of the input signal amplitude, may be read directly from the gain versus frequency locus.
