Abstract:

This final report describes an exploratory development effort for the design and fabrication of a digital servocontroller system for load control in full-scale air-frame fatigue tests. Each digital controller replaces four analog controllers. The LSI-1123 microcomputer in the digital controller executes a PI algorithm to implement direct digital control. It may operate in a stand-alone mode or as a slave processor to a master computer via fiber optic link. Other programmable features specifying loop parameters, building load profiles, adjusting control system gains and monitoring alarm and abort conditions. Keywords include Air frame fatigue tests, loadforces, load control, servocontroller, and digital control.
