The PRM violin filter seems very suboptimal - the gain peaking shows up in the MICH OLTF, presumably due to the MICH-->PRM LSC output matrix. I plot the one used for the BS in comparison in Attachment #1, seems much more reasonable. Why does the PRM need so many notches? Is this meant to cover some violin modes of PR2/PR3 as well? Do we really need that? Are the PR2/PR3 violin modes really so close in frequency to that for the 3" SOS? I suppose it could be since the suspension wire is thinner and the mass is lighter, and the two effects nearly cancel, but we don't actuate on PR2/PR3? According to the earlier elog in this thread, this particular filter wasn't deemed offensive and was left on.
Indeed, as shown in Attachment #2, I can realize a much healthier UGF for the MICH loop with just a single frequency notch (black reference trace) rather than using the existing "PRvio1,2" filter (FM2), (live red trace). The PR violins are eating so much phase at ~600 Hz.
We turned off many excessive violin mode bandstop filters in the LSC.
