Simulation and Experimental Investigation of Stiffness of the High Acceleration Linear Feed Drives
In high speed machining, the feed drives with high velocity and high acceleration are necessary to make full use of the capacities of the high speed motorized spindles. The linear motor feed drive eliminates any mid- transmitting mechanism, which cause achieved the high acceleration. In this paper, the GD-Ⅲ linear induction motor feed drive is introduced, and its controller is modeled and its stiffness has been investigated with simulation program MATLAB & SIMULINK. The influence of the parameters of the controller on the dynamic performance has also been analyzed. The simulation shows that the positional loop proportional gain kv, velocity proportional gain kp, velocity loop integral time constant Tn and the current loop proportional gain kpi have great influence on the dynamics of the linear motor feed drive. In the end, the simulation is verified by the experimental results.
