Design of Control System for Welding Tractor Based on DSP


Article Preview

In order to realize the curve welding seam tracking of welding tractor, the welding tractor driven by two rear wheels is researched in this paper. The control system that a DSP controls two DC brushless motors is designed. It contains the whole system design, hardware circuit and software design. It is designed as a double closed loop system. Experimental results verified the feasibility of the whole system.
