Paper Abstract

Traveling wave piezoelectric transformers are a new type of multi-electrodes piezoelectric transformer allowing to obtain a multiphase system of voltages at the output. The behavior of multi-electrodes piezoelectric transformers is well characterized by an admittance matrix (Y) representing all the couplings between electrodes. The Y parameters can be determined by analytical modelling or as presented in this paper by experimental measurements. In this paper we focus on a cylinder-type multi-electrodes piezoelectric transformer on which we measure the Y parameters with a vector network analyzer. By extrapolation of Laplace expression of the admittances, we represent the Y-parameters as equivalent RLC circuits in order to have a complete circuit model available for simulation with classic electrical simulation software. The results of the simulation are compared to experimental results to validate the modelling approach.
