Title: Modeling and Control of Hysteresis Nonlinearities in Smart Actuators: Magnetostrictive Actuator Case
Abstract: Magnetostrictive actuators featuring high energy densities, large strokes and fast responses are playing an increasingly important role in micro/nano-positioning applications. However, such actuators with different input frequencies and mechanical loads exhibit complex dynamics and hysteretic behaviors, posing a great challenge on applications of the actuators. To this end, a comprehensive model is developed. According to the proposed hysteresis model, an inverse Asymmetric Shifted Prandtl-Ishlinskii (ASPI) Model is proposed for the purpose of compensating the hysteresis effect. However, in real systems, there always exists a modeling error between the hysteresis model and the true hysteresis. The use of an estimated hysteresis model in deriving the inverse compensator would yield some degree of hysteresis compensation error. To accommodate such a compensation error, an analytical expression of the inverse compensation error is derived first. Then, a prescribed adaptive control method is developed to suppress the compensation error and simultaneously guaranteeing global stability of the closed loop system with a prescribed transient and steady-state performance of the tracking error. The effectiveness of the proposed control scheme is validated on the magnetostrictive- actuated experimental platform.
Biodata: Dr. Chun-Yi Su received his Ph.D. degrees in control engineering from South China University of Technology in 1990. After a seven-year stint at the University of Victoria, he joined the Concordia University in 1998, where he is currently a Professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and holds the Concordia University Research Chair in Control. He has also held several short-time visiting positions including a Chang Jiang Chair Professorship by China’s Ministry of Education and JSPS Invitation Fellowship from Japan, and Qian Ren Talents Professor from China. His research covers control theory and its applications to various mechanical systems, with a focus on control of systems involving hysteresis nonlinearities. He is the author or co-author of over 400 publications, which have appeared in journals, as book chapters and in conference proceedings. In addition to his academic activities, he has worked extensively with industrial organizations on various projects.
Dr. Su has been an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology, Mechatronics, Control Engineering Practice, and several other journals. He has served as Chair/Co-Chair for numerous international conferences.
