Abstract

This paper considers the development of closed loop regulation and tracking algorithms for membranes, based on the travelling wave approach. The membrane is modelled by a combination of modal decomposition in one spatial axis and transfer functions in the other. The transfer functions are irrational and are shown to represent the wave motion in the system. A dedicated closed loop control algorithm is designed to eliminate the wave reflections in the control axis. The resulting controllers are irrational as well, and approximations are used to implement them. The closed loop achieves both attenuation of external disturbances and stabilization of the membranes position on a desired profile.
