Paper Abstract

In this paper, one-dimensional charge redistribution of IPMC material under dynamic electric potentials is studied. An analytical solution of normalized charge density is obtained to account for the charge movement under applied electric potentials. This solution is applicable for both static and dynamic electric potentials applied to IPMC material. Based on this solution, the thicknesses of boundary layers under dynamic potentials can be calculated. The obtained solutions are useful for further understanding and modeling of the mechanism of IPMC sensing and actuation.
