Practical Considerations

  • Ilene J. Busch-Vishniac
Part of the Mechanical Engineering Series book series (MES)


The previous chapters in this book considered electromechanical transducers in detail: the fundamental energy conversion mechanisms, performance characteristics, and models which permit performance prediction. While this myopic view can be justified from the perspective of the design of electromechanical sensors and actuators, it does not lay the foundation for the practical use of such devices. This chapter is intended to be an introduction to the practical considerations of electromechanical transducers, particularly as they are used as components in larger systems.
