Feedforward control can significantly improve the performance of industrial motion systems through compensation of the servo error induced by the reference signal. Recently, new feedforward tuning algorithms have been proposed that exploit measured data from previous tasks and a suitable feedforward parametrization to attain high servo performance. The aim of this paper is to formulate a design procedure for motion feedforward tuning. Experimental results on an industrial motion system illustrate the improvement in servo performance obtained by means of the proposed tuning procedure.
