Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


The design and control strategy for a prototype high-performance, electro-mechanical actuator operating in a sequential gearbox is presented. The actuator is modeled using a 3-dimensional finite element magnetostatic model. A coupled field-circuit model is developed to analyze the dynamic performance of the actuator. A fuzzy control strategy is used to provide position control and soft-seating of the actuator. The controller is implemented using a Digital Signal Processor. Simulation and experimental results are presented to verify the performance of the closed-loop system.
