Design method for power enhancement of piezo actuators with displacement amplification using rolling transmission


Mechanical stiffness in piezoelectric actuators restrains their output property and suppresses the output energy in general. We aimed to enhance the output energy of displacement amplified piezoelectric actuators (DAPAs) by employing rolling joint mechanisms with high energy transmissibility. By using the proposed design method for the shape of the rolling… (More)
