Abstract. The actuating precision of a micro-positioning system, driven by a magnetostrictive actuator, is adversely limited by its nonlinearities, particularly the output-input hysteresis, which are further affected by the operating load and input frequency. In this paper, the output-input properties of a magnetostrictive actuated system are experimentally characterized considering a wide range of operating frequencies and loads. The measured data revealed that the hysteresis behaviour is strongly affected with a change of operating load, and a modified Prandtl-Ishlinskii model with load-dependent delay is subsequently formulated to describe the nonlinear characteristics of the magnetostrictive actuated system in terms of major and minor loop hysteresis, and output magnitude and phase responses. The proposed model integrates a load-delay function related to the load mass with the Prandtl-Ishlinskii hysteresis model so as to fully describe the coupled nonlinear delay effects of the system output. The validity of the proposed model is demonstrated through comparisons with the experimental data for a range of operating loads and frequencies. It is shown that the proposed model can accurately describe the load-dependent hysteresis effects of the magnetostrictive actuated system up to certain input frequencies.
