Numerical Analysis and Performance Test of Bidirectional Piezoelectric Control Device
Based on the configuration and mechanical characteristics of piezoelectric actuator, the bidirectional piezoelectric variable friction control device which can produce control force in two orthogonal directions was designed and the relation equation of control force with input voltage for this control device was presented. Finally, one piezoelectric variable friction control device was manufactured and performance test of this control device was processed. The result of numerical analysis and experiment shows the bidirectional piezoelectric variable friction control device can produce semi-active control force fast, and the performance of this control device do not change when the frequency of input excitation varies and the control force of this control device has stable mechanical properties.
