Masters Theses

Abstract

"The thesis describes some experimentally observed data and analytical approaches to the study of a relay servomechanism. The experimental data were secured from an analog simulation of a relay servo system. The results of this data were compared to the transient approach by use of the phase-plane method. The stability of the system was determined using a describing-function. The analytical approaches are described in the presentation.

A study of the effects of viscous friction is described, and the characteristic of the relay used in the system is given special attention. The response to input driving function was considered, and rise time, overshoot, settling time and steady state errors were considered as important criteria for determining the over-all performance.

Finally, a recommendation is given as to the approach to the synthesis and analysis of a relay servomechanism"--Abstract, page 2.
