Torque controller[edit | edit source]

Short GUI name GUI name Description How to use
TBW Torque bandwidth limit Sets the low pass filter frequency for torque controller setpoint signal Limiting torque bandwidth to a certain level may have several advantages:
  • Improve tuning of velocity or position mode
  • Reduce motor audible noise 1
  • Smoothen motion

Try various values to find the optimum for your system. Typically higher value allows setting higher velocity and position P gains giving more servo stiffness. Typically the optimum bandwidths are between 220-1500 Hz.

If you wish to check torque controller step response in testing tab, then before testing set this value to maximum and also untick Goals/CIS.

1) The best things to try are: reduce MR and ML parameter values and use TBW parameter value 100-680hz. I.e. Try reducing MR/ML by 50% or more. Reduction on these values affect directly the torque controller gains, and every time the values are halved, noise reduces 6dB but you’ll also lose some torque bandwidth. Luckily the full 3khz+ bandwidth is not necessary in most cases, so effect might be just reduction of noise. Setting TBW to 100-680 Hz activates software filtering of current sense signals thus it will also reduce the hiss.

Velocity controller gains[edit | edit source]

KVP Velocity P gain The proportional gain of velocity controller See Servo motor tuning guide.
KVI Velocity I gain The integral gain of velocity controller
