    The paper conducts energy efficiency analysis of servo
    pneumatic actuator systems and presents a method of energy
    efficient optimal control. The system is linearised through
    input/output state feedback and then energy efficient optimal
    control theory is applied to the linearised system. An optimal
    control strategy is developed with respect to the transformed
    states of the linear system model. An energy efficient
    velocity profile is derived which depends on the final state
    and initial state. Through the inverse transformation, the
    new states are converted back to the original system state
    and control variable. In this way, a nonlinear energy efficient
    controller is derived for the servo pneumatic actuator system.
