This paper presents a sensorless torque estimation algorithm for multidegree-of-freedom flexible systems. The proposed algorithm makes it possible to estimate externally applied torques due to flexible system s interaction with the environment without taking any measurement from the system. The algorithm is based on modifying the disturbance observer in order to decouple the reflected torque waves out of the total disturbance on the actuator. Then Reflected torque waves are used along with the actuator s current and velocity to estimate flexible system parameters, dynamics and the external torques or disturbances. Several experimental results are included in order to confirm the validity of the proposed torque estimation algorithm.
