Abstract:In this paper the realisation and the first experimental results of a new electrostatic actuator, the 'active joint' are presented. This structure is capable of delivering large forces and large deflections. When a sinusoidal voltage is applied with an amplitude larger than the critical voltage and a frequency close to the resonant frequency, the active joints shows a chaotic response. A first model is presented in order to describe the dynamic behaviour of active joints.
