Modeling and Simulation of Miniature Piezoelectric Motors

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The use of piezo materials is becoming common in both commercial and retail products. Motors designed using piezo materials as actuators are also being utilized where either space or magnetic materials are limited. This paper discusses the use of ABAQUS/Standard and ABAQUS/Explicit toward the development and production of small piezo motors. Analytical techniques are the only methods possible to determine motor design parameters and performance issues prior to prototype production and testing. The use of ABAQUS/Standard to solve baseline Eigenvalue extractions and transient dynamics for stator motion has made it possible to evaluate motor designs much quicker than physical evaluations. ... continued below

Description

The use of piezo materials is becoming common in both commercial and retail products. Motors designed using piezo materials as actuators are also being utilized where either space or magnetic materials are limited. This paper discusses the use of ABAQUS/Standard and ABAQUS/Explicit toward the development and production of small piezo motors. Analytical techniques are the only methods possible to determine motor design parameters and performance issues prior to prototype production and testing. The use of ABAQUS/Standard to solve baseline Eigenvalue extractions and transient dynamics for stator motion has made it possible to evaluate motor designs much quicker than physical evaluations. The use of the ''VUMAT'' subroutine in ABAQUS/Explicit has been used to create strains driven by the piezo effects, thus allowing for many thousands of cyclic loads to be applied to contacting 3D continuum structures. The use of viscous pressure techniques for near-perfect static loading under explicit dynamics will also be presented and discussed.
