Abstract

This is a compensation network for use in amplifiers and servomechanisms. The network reduces the complexity of the system by controlling the dynamic and static system performance. This network eliminates resonant peaks without restricting the bandwidth of the system. The compensated system thus has a fast transient response without the possibility of self-destructive resonances.

Complex Compensator

This is a compensation network for use in amplifiers and servomechanisms. The network reduces the complexity of the system by controlling the dynamic and static system performance. This network eliminates resonant peaks without restricting the bandwidth of the system. The compensated system thus has a fast transient response without the possibility of self-destructive resonances.

A mechanical system in which potentially self-destructive resonance exists can be compensated without restricting the system bandwidth. Such is effected by a circuit which includes two high-pass filter networks 1 and 2 connected in series with system drive amplifier 3, and feed forward amplifier 4 collected in parallel with the filters. The time constants of the high-pass networks are determined from empirical frequency response data on the original system.
