    Traveling wave ultrasonic motors (TWUSMs) possess heavy nonlinearities and load-dependent characteristics such as dead-zone. Therefore, modeling and controlling of TWUSMs are difficult and challenging tasks. In this paper, a Hammerstein model is proposed for rotary TWUSM (RTWUSM) which is proper...
