Hi John,

I am getting back to you concerning PTO dynamics. A few weeks after your reply, a new version of the model appeared on GitHub with an updated cmd-to-force transfer function. The new transfer function still has a direct transfer term but also shows an oscillating behavior, with a (5%) settling time of about 1s.

This modeling choice still puzzles me. Has the transfer function been obtained by system identification using experimental data from the real PTO? Would it be possible to study these data to better understand your choice and get prepared to the implementation of our controller?


Kind regards,
