An Introduction to Ultrasonic Motors

Toshiiku Sashida and Takashi Kenjo

A Clarendon Press Publication

Monographs in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Ultrasonic motors are a new type of electric motor which employ the piezo-electric effect to give the motive power (rather than electromagnetic interactions in conventional motors). This is the first complete account of this increasingly important motor type written by the inventor (Sashida) and a noted expert on electrical motors (Kenjo).
