  • Synthesis of a nonlinear control system

    Cited by:  Papers (4)

    The investigated nonlinear control system consists of a linear member with an ensemble of possible discrete combinations of proportional and derivative feedback around the linear member. The particular combination of proportional and derivative feedback employed at any instant is determined by a feedback switching circuit which is in turn operated by sensed binary information obtained from the out...

  • A numerical method for determining a system impulse response from the transient response to arbitrary inputs

    Publication Year: 1956, Page(s):40 - 55

    The transfer functions of large physical systems must be known if they are to be controlled efficiently. Environmental transient test procedures are described and their advantages presented. Because impulse and step functions cannot be obtained from practical test equipment, the problem of deducing the impulse response from arbitrary input and response data arises. A successful iteration procedure... View full abstract»

  • Nonlinear compensation of an aircraft instrument servomechanism by analog simulation

    Publication Year: 1956, Page(s):10 - 18
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (544 KB)

    Combination of certain analog computer techniques with the direct synthesis philosophy applied to a particularly appropriate servo configuration results in a method for direct specification of compensator design. The method centers about a calibration technique which is simple and easily applicable to nonlinear control systems of considerable generality. Mathematical representation of the physical...

    Because the first PGAC Transactions papers will be reproduced from photographs of original manuscripts, it will be necessary to maintain a standard form to provide uniformity, neatness and legibility. This manuscript is written and typed in the desired form. Detailed instructions for authors are included. View full abstract»

  • Synthesis of feedback control systems with a minimum lead for a specified performance

    Publication Year: 1956, Page(s):56 - 73

    Compensation is usually needed in a high performance feedback control system to realize a desired frequency response. Direct synthesis procedures to determine the necessary compensation are described. In particular, consideration is given to "minimum lead" systems which have an optimum gain. View full abstract»

  • A steady state approach to the theory of saturable servo systems

    It is shown that simple saturable servo systems can have two modes of response to a given input signal -- one a linear mode as predicted by linear feedback theory, and the other a saturated mode predictable from a large signal analysis presented here. This dual mode of response theory provides a reasonable explanation for premature saturation, hysteresis in the input-output characteristics, jump r... View full abstract»
