STEADY STATE RESPONSE OF A SECOND ORDER SERVOMECHANISM WITH BACKLASH AND RESILIENCE IN THE GEARS BETWEEN MOTOR AND LOAD
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The thesis is concerned with the steady state response to a step input of a non-linear servomechanism having viscous friction and a load position unity feedback loop. A gear train with backlash between resilient gear teeth was located between the motor and load. The physical equations describing the system are presented and adapted to a form for the 1604 digital computer. The computer program used in this analysis is presented along with its flow diagram and description of its operation. The results of this thesis are presented in several forms using the parameters of system damping coefficient, distribution of friction and inertia, backlash angle and coefficient of restitution. The results are applied to sample problems in illustration of their use for design and analysis.
