Automatic Frequency-Tracking Control for Ultrasound Welding System
A new frequency-tracking control method to catch the optimal working frequency for the high power ultrasonic welding system is proposed. In a high power ultrasonic resonant system, the induced high temperature will change the working frequency. Therefore, the proposed control method to track the optimal working frequency becomes very attractive and important. This control method is practically implemented by a FPGA chip which basically includes two logic circuits. One logic circuit is to find the optimal working frequency automatically and the other one is to adjust the working frequency by detecting the working current simultaneously. Experimental results exhibit the new method can effectively control and track frequency for high power ultrasonic welding system.
