Cedrat Technologies S.A | Wed, 5 Mar 2014
In this study from Cedrat Technologies, a characterisation of hysteresis in a piezoceramic stack actuator similar to that employed in an actively controlled flap (ACF) system is performed to assess the effects of hysteresis on system performance. The effect of unmodelled actuation hysteresis may significantly reduce vibration and noise reduction capabilities. A hysteresis model based on the classical Preisach model has been developed from experimental data. The model displays good agreement ...
