3. Description of MDSC/MDRC29 Series Digital to Synchro Converters or Digital to Resolver Converters

MDSC/MDRC29 series product is a converter that converts the input binary signal to that of synchro or resolver. The input signal is compatible with DTL/TTL/CMOS level, and the output is 3-wire synchro or 4-wire resolver signal. This series of product continuously tracks the input 2-bit/14-bit/16-bit binary data, and outputs high-precision synchro/resolver signal after conversion. The product is equipped with power amplification circuit inside it, and its output power can reach 5W.

5. Operating principle (Fig. 2 and Fig. 3) of MDSC/MDRC29 Series Digital to Synchro Converters or Digital to Resolver Converters

One of the distinctive characteristics of MDSC/MDRC29 series product is that it can neglect the change of radius vector. Each type of digital-to-syncrho/resolver converter must be provided with output sin and cos function signal, however, since the law of sin and cos function is not followed precisely all the time, its error can reach as high as ± 7%. In practical use, this error is not serious sometimes, but it is not allowed in the application of tracking rotating torque receiver or servo control loop. For MDSC/MDRC29 series product, this error can be reduced below 0.1%, which means that when the converter is used in a closed loop servo system, the closed-loop gain is independent of the input signal, thus avoiding undesired error resulting from change of reference signal.

6. Connection diagram for typical application (Fig. 4) of MDSC/MDRC29 Series Digital to Synchro Converters or Digital to Resolver Converters

DSC/DRC load connection
(1)Control transformer (CT)
The simplest design is using digital converter to synchro/resolver to drive the control transformer.
The min. power for driving CT is: Digital-to-synchro/resolver converter (MDSC/MDRC29 series)
Where, V is line-line voltage, Zso is the impedance between nodes after the circuit from one output end of CT to other two rotor circuits is short-circuited (Zso=Rso+jXso).
For example: when the impedance of CT is ZS=700+j490, the line-line voltage is 90V, then

Fig. 4 Connection diagram for typical application

For the adjustment of CT load, it can be reduced through 3 capacitances at the output end, as shown as below:

The required power is: (VA) (unadjusted) x Digital-to-synchro/resolver converter (MDSC/MDRC29 series)
In the above example, the capacitance is: Digital-to-synchro/resolver converter (MDSC/MDRC29 series)
The required power after adjustment is: Digital-to-synchro/resolver converter (MDSC/MDRC29 series)
In the design, it is required to note the errors that usually exist such as coil number, capacitance, inductance, etc. in CT.
Practical prompts for CT load adjustment:
① High precision capacitance is not required, an error of 20% is enough.
② Three capacitors must be used between S1 and S2, S2 and S3 as well as S3 and S1.
③ Withstand voltage and type of capacitance
For line-line voltage of 11.8V, the withstand voltage of capacitance between pins is 25VAC, and the type of capacitance is non-polar tantalum capacitance.
For line-line voltage of 90V, the withstand voltage of capacitance between pins is 150VAC, and it is allowed to use ceramic capacitance with low dielectric constant.
④ The load adjustment of resolver only requires two capacitances. One is connected between S1 and S3, and the other between S2 and S4.
(2)Control differential transducer (CDX)
The load of DSC in the equipment can be considered like CT load, but its equivalent impedance Z must be calculated like CT load, its value is generally 66%~80% of ZSO.
(3)Torque receiver (TR)
Compared with CT and CDX, it is relatively difficult to control the torque receiver (TR). Generally speaking, it requires an output amplifier. Because the change of radius vector of MDSC/MDRC28 series product can be neglected, it is more suitable for controlling TR than those devices with an error of ±7%. For an error with angle θ, the exciting current is:
Prompts:
①TR should not be blocked.
②The corresponding advance from reference input end to DSC shall conform to the provisions of TR.
③The reference input must be always applied on TR and converter.
The output voltage of DSC/DRC must completely match with the voltage required by TR.
