題目:The Concepts, Realizations and Applications of Inerter 

概要: Analogies between mechanical and electrical networks are basic and very 
well-known. For the force-current analogy, the spring, damper and mass of 
mechanical systems are analog to the inductor, resistor and capacitor, 
respectively, of electrical systems. However, unlike the others, the mass 
element fails to be a genuine two-terminal network element. Therefore, 
electrical systems with ungrounded capacitors do not have a direct analogy to 
mechanical systems with springs, dampers and masses. Hence the achievable 
performance of passive mechanical system is inherently restricted. It is from 
the appreciation of the imperfect analogy that a new mechanical device, called 
Inerter, was proposed to substitute for the mass. Inerter is an ideal mechanical 
two-terminal element with the applied force proportional to the relative 
acceleration across the terminals. The Inerter can be mechanically realized by 
various ways. Until now, two realizations, namely the rack-and-pinion Inerter 
and ball-screw Inerter, have been proposed and tested. With the introduction of 
Inerter, all passive impedance can be mechanically realized by the Inerter, 
dampers and springs. And the achievable performance can be potentially improved 
by passive. At the end, we will introduce the current applications of Inerter, 
including the vehicle suspension control, motorcycle steering control and train 
suspension control.
