Abstract : Results are given of an initial analog computer study of a linear mathematical model of the hot gas servo system; the study is part of a program leading to application of such servo systems to missile thrust vector control. The system consists basically of a pressure controlled force servo with position feedback. Both velocity feedback and compensation on the position error are used for stability and response shaping. The essential components of the system are a torque motor, gas servo valve and actuator assembly, position and velocity transducers, and a servo amplifier and associated shaping networks. The system furnishes a linear position output which is proportional to an electrical input signal. For a given input signal, a given pressure differential is set up in the actuator resulting in a given force. The position loop senses actuator position, compares it with the input signal, and modifies the pressure to achieve the desired position.
