Implementación de Controladores en un Programa de Simulación de Mecanismos

Fabián M. Camusso, Alberto Cardona


Mecano is a code conceived for nonlinear mechanisms and structures analysis in open loop sistems. In control problems, we need an additional work: the user must close the loop using an special element called user element. It allows to create multi node elements and introduce time varying nodal forces, displacements, velocities and/or acelerations. It is possible to store positions, velocities, acelerations and internal
and external forces from past samples. In this way, we can define controllers and verify its performance by simulation. In this work we implement control laws for mechanism with nonlinear behavior and evaluate an application example.
