Flight motion simulator (FMS) controllers must be tuned to compensate for nonlinear hydraulic plant characteristics and optimize dynamic response within the specified operating bandwidth of each axis. Carco has developed the Matlab-based Carco Tool Kit that adapts the SigLab data acquisition system to perform the specific stimulus and measurement routines required for efficient FMS tuning. Each controller filter is first simulated in Matlab, added to acquired uncompensated-loop data, and optimized using interactive Bode and Nichols charts. The analog filter tuning component values are then extracted from equivalent PSPICE simulations, while the digital filter coefficients are copied directly into the digital controller programming script.
