Harmonic Cancellation Algorithms Enable Precision Motion Control

Stephen Ludwick, Ph.D.
Director of Mechatronic Research

The internal model principle of control theory states that algorithms designed to perfectly reject input signals must contain a model of that input.

Feedback control that adheres to this internal model principle has led to the development of harmonic cancellation algorithms and even more complex repetitive controllers.
