A Neural Network Approach for Milling Process Control
One of key approaches to improve the productivity is to control with constant force in the milling process by adjusting the feed rate. In order to overcome the mismatch model occurred in adaptive control and inaccurate deducing regulation in fuzzy logic control, a three-layer BP neural network is designed for tracing reference force. First of all, control arithmetic is given, and a series of simulation work is achieved to determine the study factor. At last, aimed at two working conditions with abrupt and gradual change of cutting depth, the correctness and effectiveness of the neural network controller are proved by experiments.
