Research on Electromechanical Properties of Cymbal Piezocomposite Transducer
The electromechanical properties of cymbal piezocomposite transducer were investigated in this paper. Piezoelectric ceramic PZT—5A was used as piezoelectric phase of transducer, and brass foil was used as end cap electrode of cymbal piezocomposite transducer. Several types of this transducer were fabricated. The displacements of this transducer as functions of the applied force and the applied electric field were investigated. It was calculated and analyzed for the energy transmission coefficient and electromechanical coupling coefficient of this transducer which optimum values were obtained.
