Subject: Global Damping Update 

The global damping input and output matrices were installed to run for the Y-arm. Since we are using just one arm for now, only the DARM and CARM DOFs were entered into the matrices.

The input matrix was set to have elements with magnitudes of 0.5 while the output matrix was set to have elements with magnitudes of 1. The input matrix gets the 0.5 because the sensor signals must be avergaed for each global DOF, to make an 'equivalent sensor' with the same gain. The output matrix gets magnitudes of 1 so that the overall gain of the global loops is the same as the local loops. A transfer function was measured on the CARM loop to check that the overall gain is in fact the same as the measured ITMY and ETMY loops.

Simple damping filters were installed for the ITMY and ETMY as well as the global y arm CARM and DARM loops.

The ETMY output tuning filter ETMY_GLOBPOS was set to have a gain of 0.4 because there is an extra gain of 2.5 relative to ITMY in some mysterious place as discussed in log 8172.
