Abstract

In this paper a nonlinear electromechanical model for a dielectric electro-active polymer (DEAP) actuator is proposed based on an electric-circuit model coupled with a viscoelastic mechanical model. The parameters of the model are found by fitting to a creep test for the mechanical part and by standard methods for the electric circuit. The resulting model is compared with experiments for a sinusoidal and a sweep stimulus. The comparison shows a good agreement between experiments and model results.
