Paper Abstract

Ferroelectric materials are attractive for use in a wide range of applications due to their unique transduction capabilities. However, taking full advantage of these capabilities requires a control design which accounts for the materials' inherent hysteretic behavior. A common approach is to partially cancel the hysteretic effects in the system by employing an approximate inversion algorithm in the control input, resulting in an almost linear system. Using a recently developed modification to the homogenized energy model for ferroelectric materials, we combine this method with a sliding mode control design to track a reference trajectory even in the presence of modeling and inversion errors. Numerical simulations illustrate the effectiveness of the design.
