This paper describes the design and energetic characterization of an actuator designed to provide enhanced system energy and power density for self-powered robots. The proposed actuator is similar to a typical compressible gas fluid-powered actuator, but pressurizes the respective cylinder chambers via a pair of proportional injector valves, which control the flow of a liquid monopropellant through a pair of catalyst packs and into the respective sides of the double-acting cylinder.
