Authored by a team of acknowledged experts, this book presents a multidisciplinary view of the state of the art in the field of actuators. The goal of the book is to provide a comprehensive overview of the properties, applications, and potential applications of traditional and unconventional actuators, together with their corresponding power electronics. Special attention is paid to the objective assessment of competing actuator principles. The book is written primarily for designers and engineers in research and development, but will also be valuable as a textbook for students of automation engineering, mechatronics and adaptronics.... 115, 126, 216 achievable accuracy 177 active vibration absorber 16 active- clamping circuit 51 adaptive control, AC 4 adaptronics 5, ... 266 analogue amplifier 271 anti-lock braking system 177, 217 application areas 20 asynchronous point-to-point controls 206 axial ... capacitor 118 capacitor AC motor 120 cascade-circuit 113 charge control 270, 277 charge pump 44, 80 cheap motors 86 chopper 93, anbsp;...
