Extending the usable bandwidth of shape memory alloy actuators for vibration control is investigated, both analytically and experimentally. The differential actuator, which uses SMA wires in agonist-antagonist pairs, is a potential solution. Simulation shows that only modest power requirements are necessary to achieve bandwidths between 10 and 20 Hz.
