Dynamic transduction characterization of magnetostrictive actuators
MetadataShow full item record
The developed transduction model allows for various device behavior analysis including dissipative power consumption, force and stroke output, and efficiency as a transducer. An actuator design strategy based upon the dynamics of the actuator and a driven external system is presented and allows for analysis of various actuator behaviors in terms of device parameters. The Terfenol-D actuator as a collocated actuator/sensor is also made possible with the transduction model.
