Abstract

This paper discusses the field stabilization control of the M5 unit under wind disturbances. The first part is a literature survey of the spectral content of the wind disturbance. Next, a simplified model of a tip/tilt mirror control system is used to analyze the conditions for control-structure interaction. The influence of the asymptotic decay rate of the wind tilt disturbance on the magnitude and spectral content of the control torques is pointed out. A full telescope model is developed to justify a decoupled tip/tilt control design and to analyze the response of the primary mirror M1 to the disturbance generated by the control torques of the M5 unit.
