Servo control of a Meteorological Radar Antenna

Title

Servo control of a Meteorological Radar Antenna

Abstract

This project was concerned with a problem of positioning a radar antenna for the purpose of meteorological observations. Application contains a cascade position-angular speed control loop with a simple GUI for setting reference positions and speeds, as well as for visualization of key system variables. The smooth switching between position and angular speed control mode is achieved with optimal generation of jerk-free trajectories.
