Image Number 4 for United States Patent #4145642.
A system for controlling the rotation of a direct current motor has an armature resistance control circuit. An operational amplifier has one input terminal connected to the direct current motor and another input terminal connected to form a differential amplifier. A first resistor is connected between an output terminal of the operational amplifier and one of the input terminals. A second resistor is connected between the other input terminal of the operational amplifier and a terminal for applying a control signal voltage thereto. A third resistor is connected between the output terminal of the operational amplifier and the other input terminal. The rotational phase of a structure rotated by the direct current motor produces a phase detection signal. A phase comparing means compares the phase detection signal with a reference signal and applies the resulting output, phase comparison error signal as a control signal voltage. The armature resistance and the first, second, and third resistors are connected as a bridge circuit.
