Collocation methods, Automatic control, Actuators, Mechanical engineering, Non-collocation
Characteristics of mechanical systems with non-collocated sensors and actuators are investigated. Transfer function zeros location as a function of sensor position, zero-pole interlacing, and re-location of zeros are discussed in a context of presented examples. Some of the presented examples involving non-collocation are supported by experimental data. A case study involving a high speed machining spindle is examined. The control problems associated with non-collocation are studied along with the methods to solve them
