  • Publication number: 20210018005
    Abstract: A position deviation calculated by a subtractor of a vacuum pump is input to the PIDs of three modes. The first PID is a PID controller for a high-bias mode, the second PID is a PID controller for a high-rigidity mode, and the third PID is a PID controller for a low-rigidity mode. The output signal of the third PID is extracted as a change of an indicator current for each clock of a PWM frequency and then the mean value of a change of an indicator current for several clocks is determined in a calculating unit. At this point, a switching control unit performs an operation on whether the mean value of the averaged change of the indicator current is larger than a preset redetermined value and then according to the result, an ? value is outputted in the range of 0 to 1 from the switching control unit.
