    The article describes a hysteresis compensation method developed to meet stringent specifications imposed by the precision positioning of optical elements in microlithography tools. Novel and effective implementation techniques are introduced for systems possessing hysteretic behavior. The real-time implementation of the algorithm was simplified by fixing the order of the curve fit for the nonlinear component of the actuator response, limiting the number of operators used to estimate the hysteresis loop, and varying only the slope α. Using LabView, a controller capable of accurately positioning up to 36 actuators within a fraction of a second is developed. View full abstract»

  • A digital control perspective for real-time modeling of electrical switching systems - a case study of linear circuits with diodes

    The article describes a digital control technique for real-time modeling and simulation of hybrid systems. The performance of the closed-loop real-time model is close to that of the original continuous-time model. To illustrate the technique, linear circuits equipped with diodes were considered. A voltage source model of the diode is represented as an analog controller in feedback with a linear, time-invariant system and serves as a starting point to a global digital redesign strategy. The objective of digital redesign is to obtain a discrete-time control system that behaves as closely as possible to the LTI continuous-time closed-loop system. The procedure was validated through real-time and off-line simulations of a three-phase diode rectifier. View full abstract»

    Control theory has an important role to play in developing new computing systems, especially complicated software systems. Control problems that commonly occur in computing systems include regulating service levels, optimizing resources, and rejecting disturbances such as variable workloads. Developing control systems to address these problems involves a number of challenges. The article describes some of the challenges that arise in applying control theory to computing systems.

  • Calibrating a triaxial accelerometer-magnetometer - using robotic actuation for sensor reorientation during data collection

    A kinematic model and kinematic maneuver to calibrate a triaxial accelerometer and magnetometer was derived. The calibration was accomplished by implementing the maneuver on a six-degrees-of-freedom robotic arm. Analysis of the accuracy of the experimental results was performed by generating simulated data and formulating two least-squares optimization problems. By first calibrating the accelerometers with simulated data, the possibility of inconsistency in the estimator was evaluated. By calibrating the accelerator and the magnetometer separately, discrepancies in the data and model were checked. The simultaneous calibrations produced smaller errors for both the magnetometer and accelerometer compared to the separate calibrations. View full abstract»
