Abstract

The application of second order sliding mode algorithms for output feedback control in hydraulic valve-cylinder drives appear attractive due to their simple realization and parametrization, and strong robustness toward bounded parameter variations and uncertainties. However, intrinsic nonlinear dynamic effects of hydraulic valves such as slew rate limitations and time delays arising in the electrical and mechanical amplification stages limits the applicability of such methods, and may lead to partial losses of robustness and limit cycles/oscillations in the outputs, internal states and the valve input signals. The application of some popular second order sliding mode controllers and their smooth counterparts are analyzed and experimentally verified. The controllers are considered for output feedback control and compared with a conventional PI control approach. The controllers under consideration are applied for position tracking control of a hydraulic valve-cylinder drive exhibiting strong variations in inertia- and gravitational loads, and furthermore suffer from profound valve dynamics. Results demonstrate that both the twisting- and super twisting algorithms may be successfully applied for this purpose, when continuous approximations of discontinuous are utilized, and furthermore that excellent performance may be achieved when applying their smooth counterparts directly.
