A technique is described whereby an acceleration compensation motor control system, as used in matrix print head motor controls, provides for the automatic correcting of acceleration (deceleration) of a drive motor, so as to obtain the desired stopping time and distance of the print head operation. Although this technique is centered about print head applications, the concept is applicable to other motor control systems which require acceleration controls. The technique permits correction of open-loop acceleration so as to insure a fixed repeatable turnaround time and thereby a consistent repeatable stopping distance for any desired motor speed.
