I will present an extremum seeking method for affine connection mechanical control systems. The proposed control law involves periodic perturbation signals with sufficiently large amplitudes and frequencies. A suitable averaging analysis reveals that the solutions of the closed-loop system converge locally uniformly to the solutions of an averaged system in the large-amplitude high-frequency limit. This in turn leads to the effect that stability properties of the averaged system carry over to the approximating closed-loop system. Descent directions of the objective function are given by symmetric products of vector fields in the averaged system. Under suitable assumptions, one can show that minimum points of the objective function are asymptotically stable for the averaged system and therefore practically asymptotically stable for the closed-loop system. The results are illustrate by examples and numerical simulations.
