Actuators employing ferroelectric or ferromagnetic compounds are solid-state, efficient, and compact making them well-suited for aerospace, aeronautic, industrial and military applications. However, they also exhibit frequency, stress and thermally-dependent hysteresis and constitutive nonlinearities which must be incorporated in models for accurate device characterization and control design. A critical step in the use of these models is the estimation or re-estimation of parameters in a manner that is both efficient and robust. In this presentation, we discuss techniques to estimate densities in the homogenized energy model based on Galerkin expansions using physically motivated basis functions. The yields highly tractable optimization algorithms in which initial parameter estimates can be obtained from measured properties of the data. The efficiency and accuracy of the models and estimation algorithms are validated with experimental data.
