Sliding Mode Control of a Power Screw Driven Positioning Table

2010-09-10
Precise positioning and trajectory tracking control applications are important for industrial manufacturing and scientific research. Ball-screw, worm-gear, and power-screw driven systems are widely used for this purpose. Since power screw driven systems provide long range and allow precise servo control, they are commonly preferred. The control strategy developed for power screw driven systems is expected to be robust, to respond rapidly for fast tracking performance and to reject disturbances. These systems should also be controlled precisely in case of uncertainties. In order to enhance the overall system controllability, sliding mode control is one of the preferred strategies. In this paper, sliding mode control strategy developed for a power screw driven positioning table is introduced. Mathematical models of the power screw, positioning table and actuator subsystems are derived. An experimental positioning table setup consisting of a power screw is manufactured to which the developed controller is deployed for testing. The stability of the sliding mode controller is investigated in detail and its performance is compared to that of a PID controller for verification purposes.

Forecasting of Product Quality Through Anomaly Detection
Dinç, Mehmet; Ertekin Bolelli, Şeyda; Özkan, Hadi; Meydanlı, Can; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (2020)
Forecasting of product quality by means of anomaly detection is crucial in real-world applications such as manufacturing systems. In manufacturing systems, the quality is assured through tests performed on sample units randomly chosen from a batch of manufactured units. One of the major issues is to detect defective units among the sample test units as early as possible in terms of test time and of course as accurate as possible. Traditional way of detecting defective units is to make use of human experts d...

ŞAHİN, EROL; Alper, S.E.; Akın, Tayfun (2011-06-09)
This paper presents the illustrative measurement results of a comprehensive study for understanding the effects of different drive-mode control electronic architectures on the overall performance of a micromachined capacitive vibratory gyroscope. Three different control electronic architectures have been implemented for generating either (a) square wave, (b) sinusoidal wave or (c) complex waveform driving signals for the gyroscope under test. Performance characterization of the gyroscope with these control ...
Intuitionistic, 2-way adaptive fuzzy control
Gurkan, E; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet (1999-05-15)
Our objective in this paper is to develop a 2-way adaptive fuzzy control system that makes use of the intuitionistic fuzzy sets for modeling expert knowledge bearing uncertainty. Adaptive fuzzy control systems are fuzzy logic systems whose rule parameters are automatically adjusted through training. The training of such system was applied until now, to supports of rule propositions with single distribution such that they can be termed 1-way adaptive. In our system, all supports to propositions have interval...
Faux Riccati equation techniques for feedback control of nonlinear and time-varying systems
Prach, Anna; Tekinalp, Ozan; Bernstein, Dennis; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2015)
Rapid development of nonlinear control theory for application to challenging and complex problems is motivated by the fast technological development and demand for highly accurate control systems. In infinite-horizon nonlinear optimal control the essential difficulty is that no efficient analytical or numerical algorithm is available to derive exact expressions for optimal controls. This work concerns the numerical investigation of faux Riccati equation methods for control of nonlinear and linear time-varyi...
Aerothermodynamic shape optimization of hypersonic blunt bodies
Eyi, Sinan (2015-07-03)
The aim of this study is to develop a reliable and efficient design tool that can be used in hypersonic flows. The flow analysis is based on the axisymmetric Euler/Navier-Stokes and finite-rate chemical reaction equations. The equations are coupled simultaneously and solved implicitly using Newton's method. The Jacobian matrix is evaluated analytically. A gradient-based numerical optimization is used. The adjoint method is utilized for sensitivity calculations. The objective of the design is to generate a h...
