Abstract

The paper focuses on the modelling and simulation of a test rig and a digital drive is based on the transmission line modelling technique. The rig is a positioning system equivalent to a CNC machine tool feed drive. Accurate representations of dynamic systems included in electromagnetic, power electronic and some mechanical applications have been obtained until now by applying the transmission line modelling technique. The paper proposes a novel application of th~s method for simulation of closed loop control of the position of a test rig. The model includes the distributed parameter dynamics of the feed drive and the effect of mass distribution. This is based on the flexibility of transmission line modelling to develop lumped and distributed parameter systems. Also a trans
