Description

This model represents a piezo actuator. The actuator translates a voltage difference at port p1 to a mechanical position difference between the base at port p2 and the end effector at port p3.

 

Although the underlying equations of this model are equal to the equations of the CMAStrecher.emx model, the default parameter values are typical for bending.
