Servo systems typically use a combination of three types of control loops: current, velocity, and position. The velocity control loop serves two purposes—it enables the system to respond to changing velocity commands, and it allows the system to resist high-frequency load disturbances. But the velocity loop by itself can’t ensure that the system … [Read More...]
