Paper Abstract

The effect of a dual piezoelectric actuators ultrasonic linear motor is studied in this research. The two piezoelectric actuators are bonded with a linear elastic stator. The stator generates the traveling wave when the actuators are subjected to the harmonic excitations. Vibration characteristics of the linear stator are determined by using the finite element analysis, i.e., modal, harmonic and transient responses. In the experiment, the motor characteristics are tested, i.e., the maximum velocity, operating frequency and applied voltage. In addition, the relationship between the pre-load and velocity of the motor is reported. The result shows that the maximum velocity of the motor occurs at a specific per-load. The comparison of the operating frequency and harmonic response shows well agreement between the finite element and experimental results.
