  • Parallel Compensation control for Tube-type Dielectric elastomer actuator

    Recently, dielectric elastomer actuator (DEA) has been paid more attention because of its prominent characteristics such as high response, large stretch rate, lightweight etc. However, DEA has hysteresis that may lead the system to exhibit inaccuracies or oscillations and even instability. In this paper, a novel parallel compensation control system is designed for tube-type DEA to compensate the effect of hysteresis. In details, a modified play-type Prandtl- Ishlinskii hysteresis model is built to describe the tube-type DEA. Then, based on properties between play and stop hysteresis operators, a parallel compensator is constructed by using stop hysteresis operator. For rejecting the effect of input disturbance and plant perturbation, disturbance observer (DOB) is designed. To guarantee the tracking performance of the system, a tracking controller is also designed. Finally, simulation results verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.

  • Integrated driving and measurement system for dielectric elastomer actuators

    Dielectric elastomer behaves similarly to the muscles of animals under electric field and is known as one of artificial muscles. It shows great application potentials in the field of small biomimetic robots. Due to its high voltage driving and very soft or very large strain properties, it is difficult and dangerous to test deformation and strain of dielectric elastomer by classical attached sensor way. Non-touched and accurate measuring method is needed in this research. In this paper, we developed an image based deformation measurement system integrated with high voltage driving to automatically test the electro-mechanical behaviour of dielectric elastomer actuation under high voltage. Basic system structure, electronics, software and programs are introduced. The whole system works well in the VHB 4910 and 6100C dielectric elastomer planar actuation experiments with satisfactory precision and efficiency.

  • Twisted Dielectric Elastomer stack Actuator

    The purpose of this research is to make an actuator which is easily adaptable to use as artificial muscle by improving structure of stack-type Dielectric Elastomer Actuator (DEA). In contrast with previous stack-type actuator, Single body Dielectric Elastomer stack Actuators (SDEAs) is connected as single body without external frame so that it can be actuated in twisted and bended state like human muscle. Consequently, it is applicable with no design limitations of rigid frame and has the advantages of flexibility and weight lightening. Using the advantages of SDEAs, we fabricate 2-ply structure SDEAs which can amplify the contraction rate and compare the performance with the non-ply SDEAs and evaluate that SDEAs is effective for use as artificial muscle application.

  • Force relaxation in charged dielectric elastomer actuators

    A new method for the investigation of dielectric elastomer actuators is developed, in which the relaxation of actuation force is observed under constant strain condition in an open-circuit regime. Independent isothermal surface potential decay measurements were employed to study the charge storage properties of the same elastomer materials. The following materials were used for dielectric elastomer actuators fabrication: VHB (adhesive films by 3M) and Poly-styrene-ethylene-butadiene-styrene (SEBS-Dryflex). It is found that actuation force relaxation kinetics is largely dependent on charge storage and transport properties of the actuator's dielectric elastomer material.

  • Experimental study of position control with tube-type dielectric elastomer actuator

    Recently, dielectric elastomer actuator which can expand as a muscle has been paid more attention. Different from traditional film-type dielectric elastomer actuator, tube-type dielectric elastomer actuator which can deform on uniaxial direction is developed. Since the performance of dielectric elastomer actuator usually depends on its prestrain, actuation of the developed actuator under different prestrains is checked firstly in this research. Secondly, in order to apply the developed actuator as artificial muscle into robot, the basic expansion movement of the developed dielectric elastomer actuator is modeled based on its step response and frequency response experimental data. Then the PI controllers are designed to realize the position control of the tip displacement of the actuator. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by simulation and experimental results.

  • Electromechanical response experiment and study of electroactive dielectric elastomer actuation

    Polyacrylate dielectric elastomer is a smart actuation material within the family of EAP artificial muscles. Its discrete actuation property makes it promising for binary robotics and discrete robotic devices. Compared with electrostatic modeling, the mechanical behavior is more complicated due to both material and geometric unlinearity of the dielectric elastomer. This paper studies the basic electromechanical actuation of polyacrylate dielectric elastomer film 6100C and VHB4910 with comparison. Uniaxial extensions are performed to get their basic mechanical properties. Two commonly used models are further studied. The sensitivity of the models to prestrain and application feasibility in different deformation range are analyzed. The electro-mechanical actuation experiments on both VHB4910 and 6100C are performed using our new developed Integrated Driving and Image-based measurement system. Finally, the experiment result, conclusion and present and future work are provided.

  • Versatile fabrication of PDMS-carbon electrodes for silicone dielectric elastomer transducers

    We report a novel method for the fabrication of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)-carbon composite electrodes for silicone dielectric elastomer transducers. The methodology combines patterning by laser ablation and oxygen plasma induced bonding, producing stretchable and flexible devices with exceptional electrode adhesion and high mechanical robustness. The methodology also offers great flexibility in the size and scale of electrode designs; we demonstrate this in the fabrication of flexible bending actuators > 10 cm long and interdigitated capacitive sensors with micro-scale features.

  • Rotary Motion Achieved by New Torsional Dielectric Elastomer Actuators Design

    This paper reports a new way to produce a rotation motion actuated by dielectric elastomer actuators. Two specific electrode designs have been developed and the rotation of the actuator centers has been demonstrated and measured. At low strains, the rotation shows a nearly quadratic dependence with the voltage. This behavior was used to compare the performances between the two proposed designs. Among the tested configurations, a maximal rotation of 10° was achieved.

  • Batch fabricated bidirectional dielectric elastomer actuators

    All-polymer dielectric elastomer actuators have been microfabricated using a high aspect ratio molding process. The actuators are multilayer beams of 3 conductive and 2 dielectric elastomer layers. By applying an electrical potential between two of the neighboring conductive electrodes, a stress is generated. This leads to an asymetric stress in the beam and, therefore, bending. Bidirectional actuation is possible by changing which electrodes the potential is applied across. A 1000 μm long actuator demonstrated a tip displacement as high as 350 μm at 1 kV with a static electrical power consumption of 10 μW.

  • Experimental study on permittivity of acrylic dielectric elastomer

    This paper reports the experimental study on the frequency and stretch dependency of permittivity of a commercially available acrylic dielectric elastomer (VHB 4910) film. The procedure for preparing samples with different thickness using in-house developed uniaxially stretching device is described. Copper tapes are implanted on two opposite sides of a stretched elastomer film and permittivity of this material is estimated from measured capacitance using LCR meter. Variations of permittivity of this material with different pre- strain value and with different applied voltage frequency are studied. Results show that the permittivity of the material decreases with increasing frequency and increasing pre-strain value. The study would be useful for estimation of frequency and strain dependent actuation pressure of a dielectric elastomer actuator.
