Precise position control of a travelling wave ultrasonic motor

Abstract : Precise position control of a Travelling Wave Ultrasonic Motor is achieved, avoiding the traditional drawbacks attributable to non-linear torque generation: overshoot or slow response time. For that purpose, a behavior model control is proposed and presented. With this control law, a quick and precise response is obtained. In this article, we present a position control scheme of an inertial load. The guideline used for this control was a rotation of 90deg in a response time of about 200ms with a position error of 0.6mrad, targeting a typical application for avionics. In the paper, a shinsei USR30 is used, but the method can be applied to other Ultrasonic Motors.
