Documents describing the effort to develop a simulated physical model of the PFI bench and associated components necessary for closing the Cobra positioning loop.

-- PeterMao - 19 Mar 2013

  • PFIsimulator_summary.ppt: details of the physical modelling effort. fiber identification, error propagation, coordinate transformations, distortion correction

  • PositionDeterminationErrorCalc.pdf: white paper on the position determination error. This paper explains how the position determination error in Dave Braun's error budget is broken down into fundamental components. It also touches on WFC high frequency distortion error and how it affects position determination error.

  • PFI_configuration_simulator_DRAFT.pdf: white paper on the configuration simulator. This paper gives an overview of the configuration simulator, which is the tool I used to determine the convergence properties of PFI Cobras/science fibers onto target positions under PDR error budget allocations and other scenarios.
