For the automation of industries, several controls and energy feeds are put to use to obtain an efficient and stable system. Several systems help in this process, one of them being the servo system (ระบบ เซอร์ โว, which is the term in Thai). This system has a core controller called the servo controller. This controller acts as the heart of the entire system. A typical system mainly comprises a motor, a feedback device, and a controller.
The control on the other hand consists of a motion controller. This motion controller is responsible for delivering power to the motor as per the commands that are specified on the controller. These are open-loop systems that are very efficient in multiple ways. They are effective in improving the transient response times. They are also helpful in minimizing the errors in the steady-state as well as reducing the sensitivity of the system to load parameters.
Understanding the Working Of the Systems
The major function of the servo controller is to regulate the velocity as well as the position of the motor depending on the feedback signal. But, the controllers are also responsible for improving the disturbance rejection of the system by noting the input that it has been commanded with. The most efficient and powerful method by which the servo system controls the motor is proportional-integral-derivative control or PID control. PID method of control focuses on working over the error signal which highlights the difference between the value that has been commanded and the actual value of the output variable.
The proportional value is considered as simply the gain value of the system while the integral value is responsible for integrating the error over some time. It helps in driving the error to zero. The derivative value on the other hand helps in stabilizing the system by incorporating the proportional and integral terms. Thus, the PID control is a combination of proportional control, integral control along with derivative control.
The Beneficial Sides To Using These Systems
The most important role played by the servo controller and drives is to improve the working and performance of the system. The units have a servo-controlled dedicated core processor. With the help of these processors, the control speed can be easily increased which would, in turn, enhance the property of the system. Moreover, aided with better and more delicate motor sensors, the system can achieve a much higher rate of accuracy control. To maximize the efficiency of the machines and increase the productivity of the industries, lower-cost servo systems are being taken into use. The Servo motor is the best way to solve any position error of the machines.
