Zařízení pro ovládání mikroposuvu / Microposition control device

Chmelík, Jan January 2008 (has links)
This thesis deals with control of a micropositioning device. Aim of this study was to design a device that will control the piezzo-shift in three dimensions with adjustable speed and step-size. A further goal was to create a software for which allow to employ a user-defined shift profile to control the device. Actual construction of the device, based on a microcontroler Microchip 18F4550, is described in the practical section of the work.

Developement of Piezo-Hydraulic Actuation Systems Technology for use on a Helicopter Trailing Edge Flap

Herdic, Scott Lucas 28 November 2005 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to create a proof-of-concept piezoelectric actuator system capable of meeting the performance requirements necessary for actuation of a trailing edge flap for a helicopter main rotor blade. Due to extremely small displacements produced by piezoelectric actuators, their output is amplified several times in order to produce the required displacement for this device. The amplification is accomplished in two stages. The first stage, mechanical amplification, uses differential length lever arms to increase the piezoelectric actuator output. The second stage, hydraulic amplification, is coupled to the first stage and uses differential area pistons to further amplify the output of the mechanical amplifier. The actuation systems force and displacement output is characterized based on frequency.

Vibration assisted machining : modelling, simulation, optimization, control and applications

Ibrahim, Rashidi January 2010 (has links)
Increasing demand for precision components made of hard and brittle materials such as glasses, steel alloys and advanced ceramics, is such that conventional grinding and polishing techniques can no longer meet the requirements of today's precision manufacturing engineering. Particularly, in order to undertake micro-milling of optical glasses or other hard-machining materials, vibration assisted machining techniques have been adopted. However, it is essential and much needed to undertake such processes based on a scientific approach, i.e. the process to be quantitatively controlled and optimized rather than carried out with a trial-and-error manner. In this research, theoretical modelling and instrumental implementation issues for vibration assisted micro-milling are presented and explored in depth. The modelling is focused on establishing the scientific relationship between the process variables such as vibration frequency, vibration amplitude, feedrate and spindle speed while taking into account machine dynamics effect and the outcomes such as surface roughness generated, tool wear and material removal rate in the process. The machine dynamics has been investigated including a static analysis, machine tool-loop stiffness, modal analysis, frequency response function, etc, carried out for both the machine structure and the piezo-actuator device. The instrumentation implementation mainly includes the design of the desktop vibration assisted machining system and its control system. The machining system consists of a piezo-driven XY stage, air bearing spindle, jig, workpiece holder, PI slideway, manual slideway and solid metal table to improve the system stability. The control system is developed using LabVIEW 7.1 programming. The control algorithms are developed based on theoretical models developed by the author. The process optimisation of vibration assisted micro-milling has been studied by using design and analysis of experiment (DOE) approach. Regression analysis, analysis of variance (ANOVA), Taguchi method and Response Surface Methodology (RSM) have been chosen to perform this study. The effects of cutting parameters are evaluated and the optimal cutting conditions are determined. The interaction of cutting parameters is established to illustrate the intrinsic relationship between cutting parameters and surface roughness, tool wear and material removal rate. The predicted results are confirmed by validation experimental cutting trials. This research project has led to the following contribution to knowledge: (1) Development of a prototype desktop vibration assisted micro-milling machine. (2) Development of theoretical models that can predict the surface finish, tool wear and material removal rate quantitatively. (3) Establishing in depth knowledge on the use of vibration assisted machining principles. (4) Optimisation of cutting process parameters and conditions through simulations and machining trials for through investigation of vibration assisted machining.

A Transceiver System Using the Human Body as Transmission Channel

Huang, Yuah-tse 14 August 2009 (has links)
This thesis consists of two subjects of research: A Digital Modulation bit error rate study for transmission using the human body as the transmission channel, and signal coupling using a piezo transducer. The first topic involves studying several kinds of Digital Modulation and application; the transceiver is implemented using LabView. The interface for transmission uses Piezo film transducers. A high pass filter is used to remove noise and interference. The bit error rate using Manchester-coding is measured. A brief discussion is presented justifying the choice of On-Off Keying (OOK) modulation to transmit data on the human body. The second topic is a study on the design and implementation of a human body transmission system. A test chip is designed in TSMC 0.35£gm 2P4M CMOS process and first measured results are presented.
