The torque or current references to the current loops of drives providing power to helper rolls in bridles are usually slaved directly from the current reference of the master speed-regulated roll. At low line speeds the current required to overcome losses in the master speed-regulated roll will differ significantly from the current required to overcome losses in the helper rolls, resulting in overall erratic speed regulation in the bridle. A scheme based on cascaded current major loops is described and shown to provide a substantial improvement in low-speed regulation. An additional benefit is that higher speed-loop bandwidths are made possible by the decoupling effect provided by the cascaded current major loop
