The piezo-actuated stages are composed of the piezo-electric actuator and the positioning mechanism. The positioning accuracy of the piezo-actuated stage is limited due to hysteretic nonlinearity of the PEA and friction behaviour of the positioning mechanism. To compensate this nonlinearity of piezoelectric actuator, a PI feedback control associated with(More)
Due to global energy crisis and severe environmental pollution, the photovoltaic (PV) system has become one of the most important renewable energy sources. Many previous studies on solar charger integrated system only focus on load charge control or switching Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) and charge control modes. This study used two-stage system,(More)
In this paper, a Stewart-platform robot with sliding lockable base joints is proposed for reconfiguration, and it addresses the determination of the optimal configuration for the prescribed motion with maximum allowable dynamic wrench capability subject to the constraints imposed by the kinematics and dynamics of the proposed reconfigurable architecture.(More)
Mask alignment of photolithography technology is used in many applications, such as micro electro mechanical systems' semiconductor process, printed circuits board, and flat panel display. As the dimensions of the product are getting smaller and smaller, the automatic mask alignment of photolithography is becoming more and more important. The traditional(More)
This paper presents the mechanical design, the locomotion and the associated dynamic model of a new robotic wheelchair on climbing winding stairs. The prototype stair-climbing robotic wheelchair is constructed comprising a pair of rotational multi-limbed structures pivotally mounted on opposite sides of a support base so that the robotic wheelchair can(More)
