[Ian, Tega]

After talking with Rana we have an updated plan. We will be working on this plan step by step in this order.

  1. Remove c1sim from the test stand rack and move it to the rack in the office next to the printer. When connecting it we will NOT connect it to the Martian network! This is to make sure that nothing is connected to the 40m system and we can't mess anything up.
  2. Once we have moved the computer over physically, we will need to update anyone who uses it on how to connect to it. The way we connect to it will have changed.
  3. Now that we have the computer moved and everyone can connect to it we will work on the model. Currently, we have the empty models connected.
    1. recompile the model since we moved the computer.
    2. verify that nothing has changed in the move and the model can still operate and compile properly
  4. The model has the proper structure but we need to fill it with the proper filters and such
    1. For the Plant model
      1. To get it up and running quickly we will use the premade plant filters for the plant model. These filters were made for the c1sup.mdl and should work in our modified plant model. This will allow us to verify that everything is working. And allow us to run tests on the system.
      2. We need to update the model and add the state space block. (we are skipping this step for now because we are fast-tracking the testing)  
        1. Check with Chris to make sure that this is the right way to do it. I am pretty sure it is, but I don't know anything
        2. Make the 6 DOF state-space matrix. We only have a three DOF one. The surf never made a 6 DOF. 
        3. Make the block to input into the model
        4. make a switch that will allow us to switch between the state-space model and the filter block
    2. For the controller
      1. Load filter coefficients for the controller model from one of the current optics and use this as a starting point.
      2. Add medm screens for the controller and plant. We are skipping this for now because we want results and we don't care if the screens look nice and are useable at the moment.
  5.  Test the model
    1. we will take an open-loop transfer function of all six of the DOFs to all other DOFs which will leave us with 36 TFs. Many will be zero
      1. If you are looking at this post then we are measuring transfer functions from the blue flags to the green flags across the plant model.
      2. We will want to look at the TFs across the controller
