Developing a System

Developing a servo system involves several steps:

  • Determine what the system requirements are.
  • Determine the basic type of motor to use.
  • Determine a drive train.
  • Develop a comprehensive force/inertia diagram.
  • Calculate torque required.
  • Calculate reflected inertia.
  • Select a motor (and potentially a gearbox).
  • Order the system.
