[Ian, Tega]

Connected the New SUS screens to the controller for the simplant model. Because of hard-coded links in the medm screen links, it was necessary to create the following path in the c1sim computer, where the new medm screen files are located:

/opt/rtcds/userapps/trunk/sus/c1/medm/templates/NEW_SUS_SCREENS

 

We noticed a few problems:

1. Some of the medm files still had C1 hard coded, so we need to replace them with $IFO instead, in order for the custom damping filter screen to be useful.

2. The "Load coefficient" button was initially blank on the new sus screen, but we were able to figure out that the problem came from setting the top-level DCU_ID to 63.

medm -x -macro "IFO=X1,OPTIC=OPT_CTRL,DCU_ID=63" SUS_SINGLE_OVERVIEW.adl

 

[TODO]

Get the data showing the controller damping the pendulum. This will involve tweaking some gains and such to fine-tune the settings in the controller medm screen. Then we will be able to post some data of the working controller.

 

[Useful aside]

We should have a single place with all the instructions that are currently spread over multiple elogs so that we can better navigate the simplant computer.
