Dynamics 1/5



The following equation describes the dynamical interation between coupled mechanical and electrical modes:

where u and j represent the Fourier coefficient of the mechanical and electrical modes respectively. A, B, C and D are system parameters meaning the mechanical and electrical stiffness, the gyroscopic coupling and the electrical dissipation respectively.
All these parameters depend on the considered mode, on the electric connection used and on the constitutive system properties.
