A Model for a Thin Magnetostrictive Actuator
In this paper, we propose a model for dynamic magnetostrictive hysteresisin a thin rod actuator. We derive two equations that representmagnetic and mechanical dynamic equilibrium. Our model results from an application of ...
The Hybrid Motor Prototype: Design Details and Demonstration Results
A novel hybrid rotary motor incorporating piezoelectric and magnetostrictive actuators has been designed and demonstrated. The novelty of this motor was the creation of an electrical resonant circuit, whereby reactive power ...
Characterization of an ETREMA MP 50/6 Magnetostrictive Actuator
This report presents the Displacement (Strain)-Current characteristic of an ETREMA MP 50/6 magnetostrictive actuator. This actuator is made of TERFENOL-D and displays giant magnetostriction. The displacement-current ...
