N2 - Actuators based on dielectric elastomers have promising applications in artificial muscles, space robotics, mechatronics, micro-air vehicles, pneumatic and electric <br/>automation technology, heating valves, loud speakers, tissue engineering, surgical tools, wind turbine flaps, toys, rotary motors, and grippers for material handling, etc. <br/>This paper focuses on the application of Dielectric Electro Active Polymer (DEAP) technology as an actuation mechanism for different applications. The DEAP material <br/>requires very high voltage (~2.5 kV DC) to fully utilize it as an actuator. In this paper the DEAP actuator is analyzed in detail and the actuator structures, for the wind turbine <br/>flap and the heating valve applications are shown. Different high voltage switch mode power supply topologies for driving the DEAP actuator are discussed. The simulation and experimental results are discussed.
