Motor inertia identification
Report on characterization testing of motors to identify motor inertia
The attached paper describes the approach, equations, setup, operation, and results produced in testing performed this fall by FIRST FRC team #1018.
Given that we have this equipment assembled, additional tests do not take very long. We will attempt to test this year’s motor set, time permitting. Additional testing can probably be performed after competitions are over!!
Please provide comments or questions, we’ll do our best to respond.
Thanks for reading!
We also have a video of some of the testing. When able, we will post a link to the video as well.
