Abstract:

Hysteresis in smart materials hinders wider applicability of such materials in actuators and sensors. In this dissertation we study modeling, identification and control of hysteresis in smart actuators. While the approaches are applicable to control of a wide class of smart actuators, we illustrate the ideas through the example of controlling a magnetostrictive actuator.
