Digital Regulation of Accelerator Power Supplies
Design How-To 9/23/2002 Post a comment
Particle accelerators require magnet power supplies with very high performance. Digital technology advances have made it possible to implement very complicated regulation schemes using DSPs or PLDs. Hooman Hassanzadegan presents a new digital-regulation scheme based on state estimation that may replace traditional analog PID regulators. The article presents a state-space model of the proposed system, including power supply, regulator, and estimator, along with Matlab and Simulink simulations.
