I've been having some trouble figuring out why a controller that i've designed using matlab is giving me trouble.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I"m using a polynomial equations aproach to the design problem. It seems that the Z transform of the controller's transfer function has near zero values in the numerator. I'm not sure if this is the actual problem, but, it's the only thing i've been able to come up with. I just need a fresh pair of eyes to take a look at it.

There are two different files here. The first produces the transfer function of the plant. The second has the coefficients of the plant transfer function hard coded into it, and is suppossed to produce the transfer function of the controller.

It seems that the Sylvester Matrix in the second file has zeros in, giving me a very small numerator for the controller....giving near infinite gain = bad.

thanks for the help.

And I apologize in advance if the post is long....

Kt = 0.00767; %motor torque constant

Jm = 3.87e-7; %motor moment of inertia

Jeq = 2.0e-3; %equivalent moment of inertia at the laod

Beq = 4.0e-3; %equivalent viscous damping coefficent

Kg = 70; %srv02 system gear ratio (motor->load) (14X5)

Ng = 0.9; %gearbox efficiency

Nm = 0.69; %motor efficiency

Ts = .001; %sampling time is 1 mili-second

a0 = Jeq*Rm; %defining the terms of plant denominator,

a1 = (Beq*Rm + (Ng*Nm*Km*Kt*(Kg)^2)); %the denominator must be monic

a2 = 0;

b0 = (Ng*Nm*Kt*Kg); %defining terms of plant Numerator

PlantNum = [b0]; %plant numerator

PlantDenom = [a0 a1 a2]; %plant denominator

PlantTF = tf(PlantNum, PlantDenom) %making the plant transfer function

PlantTFz = c2d(PlantTF, Ts) %this produces the Z-Transform of the

%plant transfer function
