    In plants in many industries, there exist a lot of transfer systems with vibration mechanisms. While transfer without residual vibration is usually demanded in these plants, this requirement necessitates large numbers of sensors and complicated models for control design. Therefore, This work presents a trajectory control design method to suppress residual vibration in transfer systems without the ... View full abstract»

    This work is concerned with the application of H control with the generalized hold function (GHF) to track-following control of hard disk drives (HDDs). In HDDs, the sampling frequency is limited primarily by the fact that a high sampling frequency tends to decrease the available data storage capacity of the devices, since the position error signal (PES) must be stored on the dis...

  • Ferrofluid field induced flow for microfluidic applications

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):68 - 76
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2121 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Exposing a column of ferrofluid to coincident magnetic and thermal fields produces a pressure gradient in the magnetic fluid. As the column of ferrofluid heats up, it loses its attraction to the magnetic field and is displaced by cooler fluid. Subsequently, it is possible to generate a ferrofluid pump with no moving mechanical parts. Until recently, limitations in the magnetic and thermal properti... View full abstract»

    Endoscopes are medical devices to diagnose various kinds of diseases throughout the whole gastrointestinal tracks. Generally, they are divided into conventional push-type endoscopes and more recently developed wireless capsule-type endoscopes. The conventional endoscopes cannot reach the small intestines and generate pain and discomfort to patients due to the stiffness of their body. Such disadvan... View full abstract»

    A new kind of the rotary encoder based on the magneto-optical (MO) storage is proposed. Using the MO methods, a small high-precision high-response rotary encoder can be realized. High precision is achieved by a two-stage process in which the code disk is firstly written using the direct transfer recording, and then rewritten using the corrections based on the measured errors. The systems for writi... View full abstract»

    A new approach to obtain sensorless velocity feedback for loudspeakers is developed. The back electromotive force (back-EMF) of the moving coil is estimated by using a disturbance-observer-type estimator based on the coil current measurement. The cone velocity of a loudspeaker can be obtained based on its proportionality to the back-EMF. Instead of relying on the coupled mechanical dynamics as rep... View full abstract»

    This work will present a new type of passive vibration control technique based on the concept of electromagnetic shunt damping. The proposed technique is similar to piezoelectric shunt damping, as an appropriately designed impedance is shunted across the terminals of the transducer. Theoretical and experimental results are presented for a simple electromagnetic mass spring damper system. View full abstract»
