Electrical generator or motor structure – Non-dynamoelectric – Piezoelectric elements and devices
A piezoelectric motor comprising a vibratory element is configured to move a first driven element by vibrations generated by the vibratory element. A second driven element is brought into frictional contact with the first driven element to form a multistage piezoelectric drive system. Alternatively, a selected contacting portion on a support for the first driven element is provided for drivingly engaging the second driven element. The system is configured to also move the second driven element by vibrations generated by the vibratory element, these vibrations being transmitted from the vibratory element into the first driven element and possibly also into the support for the first driven element. The system is preferably configured to move the first and second driven elements independently from each other using only electric signals that are applied to the same one vibratory element.
