Automatic compensation for variations in bus voltage
- Applications using a DC power supply
DC power voltage can vary significantly during operation. For example, it decreases at high current due to the power supply output impedance and increases upon braking when the motor acts as a generator. These variations can result in performance inefficiencies, excess motor wear and other problems.
Elmo provides automatic current gain scheduling to compensate for variations in the DC bus power supply. The compensation algorithm updates the current controller in order to keep loop performance stable, even when bus voltage is changing rapidly.
