Active Friction Compensation for Motors

  • Friction is a natural occurrence that affects almost all objects in motion.
  • Extensive research attempts to develop models that accurately predict the behavior of friction.
  • Frictional effects at moderate velocities are somewhat predictable, however the effects of friction at low velocities are difficult to model.
  • Control strategies attempting to compensate for the friction effects require a suitable model that captures the behavior of friction throughout the entire range of velocity.
  • We have developed our own testbed to test such control strategies

    Below is a picture of our friction compensation testbed
