Considering robot manipulators with flexible links, a new method is proposed to control their constrained end-effector motions and the associated contact forces and/or moments. The equations of motion are separated into two parts that represent the pseudostatic equilibrium and the deviations from it. The feedforward part of the control input based on the pseudostatic equilibrium is determined algebraically and the feedback part of the control input for the stabilization of the deviations is obtained by means of a state-variable feedback law using measurements of the contact forces and/or moments, the strains in the links, the joint variables, and the end-effector position and velocity. The feedback gain matrix is determined online by a continuously updated pole placement process. The method is demonstrated by means of a planar two-link robot with a flexible forearm which is constrained to move on a cylindrical surface. Furthermore, in order to investigate the effects of the modeling discrepancies caused by using lower order models, a "submodel controller" is designed using a model with only the first mode and it is applied to the same system with the two-mode model.

A new method is proposed for the end-effector trajectory tracking control of flexible robot manipulators. The equations of motion are separated into two parts that represent the pseudostatic equilibrium and the deviations from it, The part of the control input for the pseudostatic equilibrium is determined algebraically, and the other part of the control input for the stabilization of the deviations is obtained by a state variable feedback law, by using strain, joint variable, and end-effector position meas...
Motion Control of a Spatial Elastic Manipulator in the Presence of Measurement Noises
Kilicaslan, Sinan; İder, Sıtkı Kemal; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal (2021-07-01)
This paper presents a method for the end effector motion control of a spatial three-link robot having elastic second and third links including measurement noises. In the derivation of equations of motion, not to face with complex equations of motion, each link is modeled as though the links are not connected and the restrictions on the links due to connecting them by joints are written as constraint equations. After that the Lagrange multipliers are eliminated and the constraint equations at the acceleratio...
Control of constrained spatial three-link flexible manipulators

This study deals with the force and motion control of a spatial three-link articulated manipulator with flexible second and third links. In order to reduce the complexity of the dynamic equations each link is modelled as if unconnected and the joint connections are expressed as constraint equations. Then the joint forces are eliminated and the number of equations is reduced by substituting the acceleration level constraint equations into the dynamic equations. The dynamic equations are partitioned as pseudo...
Motion control of constrained systems considering their actuation-related singular configurations
Özgören, Mustafa Kemal (2001-01-01)
In this paper, the constrained motion control of a normally unconstrained mechanical system is investigated. As far as its motion control is concerned, such a system will have a redundancy in its actuators due to the reduction caused in its number of degrees of freedom by the presence of the constraints. Four methods are described in order to determine the actuator and constraint forces. The first three of these methods necessitate using all the actuators and the fourth method is applicable in a case where ...
Hybrid model based on energy and experimental methods for parallel hexapod-robotic light abrasive grinding operations
Latifinavid, Masoud; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan (2017-12-01)
Automatic grinding using robot manipulators requires simultaneous control of the robot endpoint and force interaction between the robot and the constraint surface. In robotic grinding, surface quality can be increased by accurate estimation of grinding forces where significant tool and workpiece deflection occurs. The small diameter of the tool causes different behavior in the grinding process in comparison with the tools that are used by universal grinding machines. In this study, we develop a robotic surf...
