We theoretically demonstrate beam shaping through adaptive feedback in an acousto-optic device with electrical feedback by using experimentally determined parameters. Cases of positive feedback and negative feedback from undiffracted and diffracted orders are investigated. In addition, we demonstrate the dependence of the final value of the induced grating strength in the acousto-optic cell on the feedback parameters.
