Piezoelectric materials show nonlinear hysteresis behaviour when they are under high electrical field and mechanical load. Fundamental study of PEA depicts that the Hysteresis effect deteriorate the tracking performance of The PEA. This paper proposes a nonlinear model which quantifies the Hysteresis nonlinearity generated in Piezo-actuators in response to applied driving voltages. A novel perfect tracking control method based on multi rate feed forward control is proposed which uses the nonlinear model to compensate mentioned limiting factors in PEA. In this study a multi rate control method based on modified Prandtle-Ishlinskii operator as nonlinear model is implemented. It compensates rate dependant hysteresis nonlinearity in PEA. The controller structure has a simple design and can be quickly identified. The control system is capable to achieve suitable tracking control and it is convenient to use and can be quickly applied to the practical PEA applications. Experimental results are provided to verify the efficiency of the proposed method.
