Paper Abstract

EMF has demonstrated the emergence of an internal structure within the power system and drive electronics for discrete and continuous piezo-coupled systems which leads to the underlying theory of quasi-active controllers (i.e. operates at high voltage, but with no net energy consumption). If the control is lossless, then it should be possible to implement control in a way which, while it requires a power source, consumes no net energy from the power source. That is a drive/control mechanism which needs a reservoir of stored energy rather than a continuous source of power. This paper is devoted to presenting a complete solution to the implementation of this new concept which is termed a synthetic lossless realization. The synthetic circuitry implements a lossless realization of quasi-active control. The synthetic concepts and circuitry are introduced and the analog and digital microcontrollers of the controlled coupled parameters are discussed.
