Research into the Variable Speed Pump Control System for Driving the Cutter Head of Shield Tunneling Machine
The cutter head drive hydraulic system of φ1.8m simulate shield machine is introduced in this article, which has the variable speed pump control technique and the closed loop control method. The AMESim simulation model of the hydraulic system is built up, and the efficiency of the hydraulic system, speed control performance by open loop and closed loop control are analyzed. The result of the simulation shows that the variable speed pump control system has higher efficiency than the variable displacement pump control system about 4%-26% in the same condition when the cutter head speed is at the range of 0.5-4r/min, and the hydraulic system has good dynamic characteristics in closed-loop PID control.
