    The application of a sliding-mode control based on a Variable Structure System (VSS) for a multijoint manipulator is presented. The high-gain effect of a sliding-mode control suppresses the complicated interactions between each joint of a robot arm. The resulting system is completely robust whereas the obtained control law is simple and easy to apply to on-line computer control. In this-paper, the... View full abstract»

    The conventional proportional P controller has been often used as the position controller of the dc servo motor. When the unknown and inaccessible load torque, such as the coulomb friction, the gravity, and so on, is imposed on the dc servo motor, this control system has the steady-and/or transient-state error.

    A microprocessor-controlled static induction transistor (SIT) inverter is proposed to link a solar battery with a utility ac power line. The main control objectives are to optimize the power flow from the solar battery to the utility power line and to compensate the reactive power, including harmonic distortion. The performance is well realized by the experimental setup. View full abstract»

    Stepping motors provide precise digital control of speed, without tachometer feedback, and have no brushes to wear. This makes them useful in feedback control systems. However, the stepping motor's natural resonance and its requirement for limited acceleration can cause sustained vibrations and overshoots. Modulating a stream of stepping pulses at twice the resonance frequency with special sequenc... View full abstract»

    An adaptive procedure is presented which estimates the eigenvalue of a system and calculates the coefficients of a discrete-time integration operator based on the estimate. The coefficients of the integration operator are chosen so that a stable transfer function results even though the simulation time step has been chosen independent of the expected range of values of the eigen value.

    Model reduction is important in control and instrumentation. Numerous papers on model reduction have been published. In this paper model reduction methods are classified into three categories according to their underlying principles. The three categories are continued fraction expansion, dominant mode, and optimum fitting. Given numerical examples, the effectiveness and the merit of simplified mod... View full abstract»

    A commercially available detector array outputs data hundreds of times faster than the input READ rate of a microcomputer (/g=m/C). This waveform analyzer sifts out uninteresting signals and permits the /g=m/C to read all useful data. A 1024-bin detector array can output 16 parallel channels of analog information every 15 /g=m/s. This total data rate is 68.3 MHz, but a Motorola-68000-based VERSAbu... View full abstract»

    The main disadvantage in a developing country for a dedicated microprocessor-controlled machine system is the sophistication of the ``special engineering'' involved in these systems. For a small firm using conventional numerical control (NC) machines to implement such systems in-house (even in developed countries) these costs are considerably reduced by the use of personal computers to program LSI...

    Analysis of a digitally controlled current loop in a drive system is performed by a newly developed z-transform method that serves both the discontinuous and continuous case, and is verified by an interactive computer program based on system modeling. The assumption made is that the drive system has a sufficiently high mechanical inertia so that the current loop responds before the speed has chang... View full abstract»
