Hardware-in-Loop Simulation on Hydrostatic Journal Support Pose
A scheme of improving performance of hydrostatic journal support was presented, that is, control journal support pose by controlling flow of four controllable chambers and Coupling various oil film thickness, to assure journal support expected pose; Chamber flow can be regulated by electro hydraulic servo valve-control variable pump according to the surface roughness, load, cutting force, and thermal results of journal support. The mathematical model of the controllable chambers flow, servo variable mechanism and controller were built; the pose control model was established, which contain the kinematics positive and negative solution and control strategy of hydraulic cylinder position feedback; Hardware-in-loop simulation experiment was carried on the electro hydraulic servo test bench by mean of the non-linear relation of film thickness and the hydraulic cylinder displacement. Simulation and Hardware-in-loop simulation experiment results show that the controllable journal support exhibit high oil film rigidity can stably and quickly track the expected goal and can be broadly applied in high precision heavy horizontal machine tool.
