Abstract

This study was aimed at evaluating the perfect balancing position of an automatic ball balancer installed in optical disk drives taking into consideration the effects of the rolling friction, speed ratio, and scaling parameter on ball positioning. A mathematical model that is employed to derive the dynamic equations of the ABB system was constructed. Stability of the steady-state solutions was then analyzed. A numerical simulation and an experimental study were conducted to verify the mathematical model. The simulation and experimental results were in good agreement.
