Real-time motion control using field programmable gate arrays

Mutlu, Barış Ragıp
In this thesis, novel implementation methods for FPGA based real-time motion control systems are investigated. These methods are examined for conventional and modern controller topologies as well as peripheral device interfaces which are mutually essential pieces of a motion controller. The developed methods are initially tested one by one to assess the performance of the individual design; and finally an assembled solution is developed to test the overall design. Tests of the overall design are realized via hardware-in-the-loop simulation of a real-world control problem, selected as a CNC machining center. The developed methods are discussed in terms of their success, resource consumptions and attainable sampling rates.
