Micro-operating mechanism, parallel mechanism, piezoelectric actuator, parameter identiﬁcation, adaptive control
We describe a micro-operating mechanism for a human-scale teleoperating system. The Bouc-Wen model was used to describe the hysteresis in piezoelectric actuators and parameters were identiﬁed to characterize the hysteresis using a genetic algorithm. To improve the performance of the system, a model reference adaptive controller was
designed based on the Lyapunov stability theory. Both numerical simulations and experimental results imply that the controller was eﬀective in eliminating the hysteresis in the piezoelectric actuators.
