Motor[x].PhasePosSf - steveneads - 07-22-2016

We have had some difficulty with Motor[x].PhasePosSf when converting UMAC code to PPMAC.

It seems that the description under Ixx70 on p1416 of the PPMAC Reference Manual "Set PhasePosSf = 256/(Ixx71/Ixx70) for compatible operation" is incorrect.

This yields: 256 * commutation cycles per rev / counts per rev

I believe that the description for Motor[x].PhasePosSf (p464) is correct.

This yields: 2048 * commutation cycles per rev / (256 * counts per rev)

Clearly there's a scaling mix up.

Read the description (expression) in the Brick manual

Thanks for pointing that out. Are you referring to the Turbo to Power I-var equivalents table near the end of the Software Reference manual? You gave a different page number than the current manual has (page 1416 versus 1295).

RE: Motor[x].PhasePosSf - steveneads - 07-26-2016

I was referencing your manual 050-PRPMAC-0S0 dated April 11, 2016 - page 1416. Page 1295 in this manual refers to "Mathematical Feature Specification". Is this manual now out of date?

RE: Motor[x].PhasePosSf - Gregs - 07-27-2016

No, I am the one with the out of date manual.

Probably, the best description is in the Power Brick Ac manual under the "On-going Phase Position" heading (p.125), as Richard referred a few posts back.
