    This paper discusses the operation of a chemical reactor and particularly the need for highly reliable instrumentation and control for critical processes. It describes the use of fault tolerance for the computer control to provide a level of reliability previously unachievable with standard computer control systems. The provision of highly reliable interface equipment to the reactor itself is desc... View full abstract»

    Programmable controllers (PC's), conceived in 1968 by a team of engineers at G. M.'s Hydramatics Division, have experienced a revolutionary development and gone through four generations of design in a decade. The exponential increase of functional capability was accompanied by a similar development trend in the I/O area from passive I/O modules to intelligent I/O and distributed I/O systems. As th...

    Redundant control systems require more than a single redundant construct to serve the six basic functions of fault tolerance: test, detection, diagnosis, masking, reconfiguration, and recovery. Software usually constitutes or supports one or more such constructs. Additionally, software must be correct, since it is seldom, if ever, protected by redundancy. A redundant sequential control system requ... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces a theory of parameter identification using an extended Luenberger observer. State augmentation is used to represent the unknown parameters, and an extended observer/ identifier is utilized to provide both state reconstruction and parameter identification. Conditions for convergence are established, and conditions are defined for the observability of the augmented system. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1210 KB)

    A single-chip microcomputer is used to design a fully digital dc servo system to replace the conventional analog circuits. This microcomputer performs three main tasks: the firing control of a three-phase full-wave thyristor dual converter; the compensation for the nonlinear and loading effect in the converter; and compensations of position loop and rate loop. With no current feedback and minimum ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the steady-state and dynamic characteristics of a microprocessor-controlled current source. The source is based on an eight-thyristor phase commuted bridge which gives an improved power factor and decreased harmonic distortion. Limiting curves for continuous conduction are presented together with line and thyristor currents in a delta-y input transformer bank. The system's sal... View full abstract»
