The book aims at empowering readers with a clear understanding of multi-stage mechanism, different microactuators’ performances, their limitations to control system performance and problems encountered in control system design and techniques for solving these problems and dealing with these limitations. This book is designed for academic researchers and engineering practitioners in systems and control, especially those engaged in the area of control in mechanical systems with microactuators and multi-stage actuations.
