Not so fast!

In the drawing, the FF path should actually be summed in after the Phase Tracker (i.e. after S_ALS). This means that the slow response of the phase tracker needs to be taken into account in the FF cancellation filter. i.e. D = -A_REFL * P_ALS * S_ALS. Since the Phase Tracker is a 1/f loop with a 1 kHz UGF, at 100 Hz, we can only get a cancellation factor of ~10.

So, tonight we added a 666:55 boost filter into the phase tracker filter bank. I think this might even make the ALS locking loops less laggy. The boost is made to give us better tracking below ~200 Hz where we want better phase performance in the ALS and more cancellation of the ALS-Fool. If it seems to work out well we can keep it. If it makes ALS more buggy, we can just shut it off.

Its time to take this loop cartoon into OmniGraffle.
