  • A novel displacement model of the twisted and coiled polymer actuator (TCPA) is proposed. In order to explicitly deal with the effect of the convective heat transfer on the displacement behavior, we focus on the temperature and velocity dependence of the convective heat transfer and regard the convective heat transfer as one of the dissipation function. Through some experiments for three TCPAs, it is verified that the proposed model is more plausible than the conventional linear model.
