This report is the result of a master thesis work where the goal was to develop acontrol system for a type of ultrasonic motor. The ultrasonic motors use ultrasonicvibrations from a piezoelectric material to produce a rotating motion. They arepowered by two sinusoidal voltages and their control signals generally are thevoltages amplitude, frequency and the phase difference between the two voltages.In this work the focus is on control using only amplitude and frequency. A feedbacksignal was provided by an encoder, giving an angular position. The behavior of themotors were investigated for various sets of control signals. From collected data alinearized static model was derived for the motor speed. This derived model wasused to create a two part control system, with an inner control loop to managethe speed of the motors using a PI controller and an outer control loop to managethe position of the motors. A simple algorithm was used for the position controland the result was a control system able to position the motors with a 0.1 degreeaccuracy. The motors show potential for greater accuracy with a position feedback,but the result in this work is limited by the encoder used in the experiments.
