Key numbers in design of magnetostrictive actuators and generators
2006 (English)In: Actuator 2006, 2006, 774-777 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In order to compare and judge magnetostrictive actuator designs with different design parameters a number of novel figures-of-merit are presented. The use of the suggested key numbers is demonstrated regarding the assessment of three different bias magnetization approaches. The features of a magnetostrictive power harvesting device, a so called VIBEL (VIBrational ELectric energy), are studied by means of the suggested key numbers. A VIBEL is built up like a magnetostrictive actuator, but converts a mechanical force excitation into electrical power.
