Evolving the Rules of Inertia Matching
The accepted principle of matching motor to load inertia is no longer pertinent with today’s faster processors and advanced control algorithms.
This outdated method increases costs and adds unnecessary mass in applications where load inertia is high and the continuous torque requirements are low. Motor inertia is only one consideration when developing an optimally performing solution requiring good bandwidth and servo stiffness.
From the origins of this rule to technological advances to considerations of a system response time and bandwidth, Kollmorgen analyses the evolution of inertial coupling rules in this Whitepaper and draws his conclusions.
