Design of a Robust Position Tracking Controller with Sliding Mode for a 6-DOF Micropositioning Stage
Moon, Jun-Hee ; Lee, Bong-Gu ;
Journal of Manufacturing Technology Engineers, volume 20, issue 2, 2011, Pages 121~128
As high precision industries such as semiconductor, TFT-LCD manufacturing and MEMS continue to grow, the demand for higher DOF precision stages has been increasing. In general, the stages should accommodate a prescribed range of payloads in order to position various precision manufacturing/inspection instruments. Therefore a nonlinear controller using sliding motion is developed, which bears mass perturbation and makes the upper plate of the stage move in 6 DOF. For the application of the nonlinear control, an observer is also developed based on expected noise covariance. To eliminate the steady state error of step response, integral terms are inserted into the state-space model. The linear term of the controller is designed using optimization scheme in which parameters can be weighted according to their physical significance, whereas the nonlinear term of the controller is designed using trial and error method. A comprehensive simulation study proves that the designed controller is robust against mass perturbation and completely eliminates steady state errors.

Journal of Manufacturing Technology Engineers, volume 20, issue 2, 2011, Pages 129~132
This paper presents small hydrogen regulator for the mobile fuel cell. Mobile fuel cell is generally classified into open-end type and dead-end type. In the open-end type, flow rate of hydrogen is constantly controlled, while pressure of hydrogen is constantly maintained in the dead-end type. Considering the efficiency and stability of the fuel usage, dead-end type is more suitable with mobile fuel cell. Mobile fuel cell operated by dead-end mode requires hydrogen regulator which controls the hydrogen pressure from 0.1bar to 0.5bar within 3% error. In this paper, small hydrogen regulator (volume of 2.6cc) was fabricated by stainless steel. Regulation characteristics was experimentally evaluated.

Park, Sung-Oan ;
Journal of Manufacturing Technology Engineers, volume 20, issue 2, 2011, Pages 139~144
This paper presents a boundary element application to determine the optimal impressed current densities at defect position on the pipe line. In this protection paint, enough current must be impressed to lower the potential distribution on the metal surface to the critical values. The optimal impressed current densities are determined in order to minimize the power supply for protection. This inverse problem was formulated by employing the boundary element method. Since the system of linear equations obtained was ill-conditioned, including singular value decomposition, conjugate gradient method were applied and the accuracies of these estimation. Several numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the practical applicability of the proposed method.

Journal of Manufacturing Technology Engineers, volume 20, issue 2, 2011, Pages 157~161
The study for traffic safety improvement is so necessary to minimize the wound of pedestrian at car impact as to prevent pedestrian from this accident. This study aims at analyzing the behavior affected by impact on which car body hits pedestrian. Load and damage of pedestrian are also investigated. This model is the small car body as frame structure. The pedestrian is modeled with dummy by CATIA as Korean standard body style. The ear impacts the side of pedestrian with the speed from 30 to 90km/h. Behavior and damage of pedestrian at impact are analyzed by ANSYS. In case of 30km/h, The maximum pressure of dummy becomes the maximum value of 100MPa after the elapsed time of 0.1second and then seems to remain at 105MPa constantly. In case of 60km/h, its pressure becomes the maximum value of 110MPa at the elapsed time of 0.05second and decreases at 90MPa until the elapsed time of 0.1second. This value fluctuates after the elapsed time of 0.1second. In case of 90km/h, its maximum pressure becomes the maximum value of 155MPa at the elapsed time of 0.07second and fluctuates after the elapsed time of 0.07second until O.3second. This value seems to remain at 100MPa constantly after 0.3second until 0.5second. But this pressure increases suddenly just after 0.5second. Maximum deformations of dummy increase linearly according to elapsed time at hitting velocities of 30, 60 and 90km/h.

This paper focuses on the optimal step-over value for magnetic tool path. Since magnetic flux density is changed according to distance from center of magnetic tool. Enhanced surface roughness is also different according to change of radius. Therefore, to get a identical surface roughness on workpiece, it is necessary to find optimal tool path including step-over. In this study, response surface models for surface roughness according to change of radiuses were developed, and then optimal enhanced surface roughness for each radius was selected using genetic algorithm and simulated annealing to investigate relation between radius and surface roughness. As a result, it found that step-over value of 6.6mm is suitable for MAP of magnesium alloy.

Journal of Manufacturing Technology Engineers, volume 20, issue 2, 2011, Pages 180~186
This paper describes a micro electrical discharge machining (MEDM) technique that uses an insulated tool in combination with ultrasonic vibration to drill micro holes. As the machining depth becomes deeper, the dispersion of debris and circulation of the dielectric fluid are difficult to occur. Consequently, machining becomes unstable in the machining region and unnecessary electrochemical dissolution and secondary discharge sparking occur at the tool side face. To reduce the amount of unnecessary side machining, an insulated tool was used. Ultrasonic vibration was applied to the MEDM work fluid to better remove debris. Through these methods, a
thick stainless steel plate was machined by using a
diameter electrode. The diameters of the hole entrance and exit were
, respectively. It took only 351s to completely drill one hole.

In this paper, we present a study on the real-time implementation of mobile robot to which the interactive voice recognition technique is applied. The speech command utters the sentential connected word and asserted through the wireless remote control system. We implement an automatic distance speech command recognition system for voice-enabled services interactively. We construct a baseline automatic speech command recognition system, where acoustic models are trained from speech utterances spoken by a microphone. In order to improve the performance of the baseline automatic speech recognition system, the acoustic models are adapted to adjust the spectral characteristics of speech according to different microphones and the environmental mismatches between cross talking and distance speech. We illustrate the performance of the developed speech recognition system by experiments. As a result, it is illustrated that the average rates of proposed speech recognition system shows about 95% above.
