Stability analysis of nonlinear machining force controllers

1999 Proceedings of the 1999 American Control Conference (Cat. No. 99CH36251)  
Regulating machining forces is a common process control technique used to increase productivity and quality. Model parameters vary significantly during a normal operation, thus, adaptive techniques have predominately been used. However, model-based techniques that carefully account for changes in the force process have again been examined due to the reduced complexity afforded by such techniques. In this paper, the effect of model parameter variations on the closed-loop stability for two

It was found that the stability boundary in the process parameter space can be exactly determined for force control systems designed for static force processes. For force control systems designed for first-order force processes, it was found that the stability boundary is sensitive to the estimate of the discrete-time pole. The analysis was verified via simulations and experimental studies.
