Applications of Piezoelectric Materials
In this paper, the different applications of piezoelectric material (PZT) are surveyed such as: actuators, motors, transformers, sensors, and benders. The operation concept, advantages and disadvantages of these types are explained, that drive the suitable application of them. Moreover, the electrical and mechanical features of piezoelectric material are presented. These features are dynamic behavior, operation voltage, maximum force, and temperature effect. There are different piezoelectric material types such as ferroelectric materials and ferroelectric polymers that are presented and a comparison between them is achieved.
