Motion Control

For positioning and speed controlled applications correct tuning of cascaded speed and position PI(D) controllers is essential to obtain dynamic, accurate and safe operation. However, tuning these controllers is often cumbersome and trial and error methods usually result in non optimal behaviour. Therefore, more methodical controller tuning is of interest. These methods have an unfair reputation of being very mathematical and difficult to apply in industry. The Op3Mech team has a long expertise in controller tuning in practical envoirements. We offer training in systematic yet easily applicable methods to tune (cascade) PI(D) controllers, feedforward, pre filtering. Moreover, you can always contact us for consult in specific cases. Both training and consult can be provided at the university campus or on-site at you company. Moreover, we can support you on every drive / motion controller platform or software.
