Research on Power Generation of Electroactive Acrylic Elastomer
The power generation characteristics of electroactive acrylic elastomer (EAE) were studied by experiments based on theoretical analysis. The generator mode theory fundamentals of EAE were discussed and studied. A power conversion control system for EAE was designed. The experimental results show that energy generated as nearly incompressible elastomer layers increase in area and decrease in thickness when EAE stretched, and power generated when EAE relaxed. The voltage of generation increased with the bias voltage increasing. The experimental results accorded with analytical model and lay the foundation for generator of EAE.
