    Industrial system considerations suggest the need for fiberoptic data links that have the ability to reduce susceptibility to noise from EMI or RFI, to isolate a system from high voltages and transmit reliable data. This paper deals with the design aspects of a fiber-optic system link, suitable for industrial process applications, and addresses process environments with slowly changing parameters ...

  • Application of Acoustic Sensors to Robotic Seam Tracking

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):219 - 224
    Cited by:  Papers (19)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1723 KB)

    Robotic seam tracking systems require three-dimensional information about the seam geometry. The applicability of a nontactile acoustic sensing system, which provides range information about the distance between a sensor and the workpiece, is evaluated for the three-dimensional surface characterization task. An algorithm for executing a two-dimensional surface height sampling of an unknown workpie... View full abstract»

    The paper describes a new method of linear control for transfer of optimum power from a Solor Cell Array (SCA) to the distribution network. It is shown that the current corresponding to the optimum power varies almost linearly with the level of illumination. By connecting a storage battery in parallel to the SCA, the charging current to the battery is continuously adjusted by sensing the illuminat... View full abstract»

  • Scaling and Roundoff in Fixed-Point Implementation of Control Algorithms

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):228 - 234
    Cited by:  Papers (12)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1439 KB)

    The analysis and design of digital controllers on microprocessors using fixed-point arithmetic have been considered. Three scaling techniques are applied to the design of digital controllers in such a way as to avoid overflow and to optimize the signal-to-roundoff noise ratio. Both the scaler and the multivariable cases are treated. Statistical estimates of the steady-state roundoff and quantizati... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses some of the issues concerning limit cycles due to fixed-point implementation of control algorithms. It is shown that a dc equilibrium point may not always exist, although its existence is easily guaranteed for Type-1 systems. Simple formulas are given for bounds on the amplitude (rms and absolute) of limit cycles, should they occur. These bounds can be decreased by increasing ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the pole-placement method for the synthesis of the dc motor speed control system. The proposed grapho-analytical procedure, applicable to third-order digital control systems, enables the designer to readily obtain the information about effects of system constants and adjusting system parameters on the accuracy, speed of response, and stability margin. The design of the real mot... View full abstract»

  • One-Chip Microcomputer-Based Controller for the McMurray Inverter

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):249 - 254
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2460 KB)

    Control signals applied to a power converter can be obtained with the aid of microcomputer software. A reliable, low-cost, and small-sized gate circuit can be realized by using microcomputers. The generation of control signals required to control the McMurray inverter are attained by the one-chip microcomputer Intel 8748. The microcomputer generates not only the required firing pulses but monitors... View full abstract»

    A method to apply the principle of integral pulse modulation to the series-resonant converter is proposed, analyzed, and tested. The proposed control module facilitates combining the favorable properties of the series-resonant power converter (reliability, low weight, high efficiency) with those of the pulse integral control system (accuracy, fast response).

  • A new type of analog multiplier

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):268 - 271
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2071 KB)

    A new type of four-quadrant analog multiplier is proposed. Compared to the triangle-averaging and time-division type of multipliers it does not require a triangular-wave generator and thus it is quite simple. Unlike time-division multipliers based on the charge-equalization principle, it immediately acquires the steady state when one particular signal changes from one value to the other. Experimen...

    A pulse-width modulation (PWM) strategy used to generate a control signal for an electronic switching inverter is described. A triangular timing wave of frequency f=6¿¿N¿¿F is used where F is the reference wave frequency, and N¿¿ 1 is an integer. The polarity of the timing wave is the same as the polarity of the half period of the reference wave. A comparative analysis is presented of the PWM sign... View full abstract»
