Non-Linear Compensation for High Performance Feedback Systems with Actuator Imperfections – ATLANTA AES10/GRS29 CHAPTER on 16-June-2014

Inexpensive actuators are often more rugged than costly alternatives, a particularly attractive feature for military applications or operations in harsh environments. A common drawback of inexpensive actuation is variability in response that contributes to tracking error. This can be ameliorated without substantial expense by the application of large feedback that not only enhances tracking performance… Read more
