Abstract

We address nonlinear robust adaptive dynamic output feedback of voltage-fed dual-axis linear stepper (Sawyer) motors using a detailed motor model with electrical dynamics and significant uncertainties and disturbances. A coordinate transformation is proposed to decouple the model into three third-order subsystems along with an appended fifth-order subsystem. The controller utilizes only position and velocity measurements in each axis and achieves practical stabilization of position tracking errors. Adaptations are utilized so as not to require any knowledge of electromechanical system parameters. The controller is robust to load torques, friction, cogging forces, and other disturbances satisfying certain bounds. The controller corrects for the yaw rotation to achieve synchrony of motor and platen teeth.
