In this paper, electrostatic micromotor and conventional electromagnetic micromotor are compared. According to their different operation principles, the paper firstly analyzes the scaling effect of driving forces. Characteristic dimension L represents the linear scale of the micromotors. Electromagnetic driving force is proportional to high-order power of characteristic dimension L whereas electrostatic driving force is not. So, in micro domain, the effect of electrostatic force is larger than… CONTINUE READING
