The current synchronized motion control methods used in paper machine drives are not designed to possess the inter-shaft stiffness properties which were responsible for the coordinating force inherent in classical, mechanically coupled paper machines. Consequently, these controllers cannot easily maintain coordination for all operating conditions. This paper presents the application of an "electronic line-shafting" control technique which serves to replicate and even improve on the historical… CONTINUE READING
