Input Y and End Y coil driver harmonics.

With Aso-san, Lucia, Yamamoto-san, Okutomi-san, Nakano-kun

Entry  10687 reports the presence of non-linear components in the output of End Y horizontal marionette super high power coil driver. Today we aimed to identify the impact of the non-linearity by analyzing the behaiviour of a healthy coil driver, namely Input Y horizontal marionette coil driver.

  • We connected the monitor of the coil driver into the digital system and measured the amplitude spectral density (ASD) shown in the first figure when actuating MN-L with a signal at 0.2 Hz and 10,000 counts in amplitude. The harmoics are clearly visible and they are about 4 orders of magnitude smaller then the excitation at 0.2 Hz.
  • Then we connected the output from the anti-imaging filter (before the coil driver) into the digital system and measured the ASD again. As shown in the second picture the harmonics are still there.
  • Later we connected the output from the ADC (before the anti-imaging filter) directly into the digital system and measured the ASD again. As shown in the third picture the peaks are still there.
  • We left the coil driver monitor connected in cae we want to check it again soon. See the screenshot for channel names and location of the measured data.

In a healthy systyem the amplitude of the harmonic peaks are 10,000 smaller than that of the excitation. These measurements suggest this amount  of non-linearity is not the origin of the problem reported in entry  10673, which affects the End Y marionette.

Later we went to the End Y. Over there

  • We connected the coil driver monitor to the digital system. (Nakano-kun changed the channels used for monitoring to DAQ channels.)
  • We injected a signal in MN-L at 0.2 Hz with amplitude of 10,000 counts. We didn't see the troublesome non-linearity (so-called kick in entry 10673).
  • We changed the coil driver with a normal high power coil driver and adjusted the output gain in software accordingly with a factor of 2. (Only in H1 and H2 coil channel.)
  • We looked for the non-linearity again but we didn't find it. See the time series in the last picture.

After their work, transfer function from MN yaw excitation to MN OpLev yaw signal was measured.
Attached is a measured result compaired with the transfer function on 19.
It seems fine.
