Paper Abstract

A transformer equivalent circuit is used to represent a piezo-actuator. The circuit is developed starting from electromechanical transduction principles and included in SPICE software. The actuator is a length-expanded cantilever. Analytical and simulated results are compared and found in god agreement both in static and dynamic studies.
