Energy Cost Assessment of the Active Control of a the Flexible Rotor Supported by AMB
From a designer point of view, optimizing the energy necessary for the control is an important element that could lead to downsize the control cabinet and to an increase of margins according to power amplifier capabilities. Also, reducing the energy used, generates a less significant environmental impact. Two fuzzy logic based controllers were developed and assessed. First, the “Mechanical” performances are compared with respect to an augmented PID controller. Then, the energy necessary for the control is compared.
