16 May 2005 Extending PAD (power allocation and distribution)
Author Affiliations +
Microwave-driven smart material actuators were first envisioned and developed as the best option to simplify the complexity and weight of hard wired networked power and control for smart actuator arrays. A power allocation and distribution scheme (PAD) was originally devised to simplify the wiring of thousands of control cables. The original design was limited to 20 volts, the maximum drain-source voltage of a dual-gate MOSFET used in the circuit. The present research sought to extend the usable voltage range to 200 volts.
