The piezo tutorial "Quasi-Static actuators" describes applications where dynamics (acceleration, damping) can be neglected. However, in many applications, dynamics play an important role and have to be taken into account in the design process. The tutorial gives an introduction to dynamic applications. A simplified model is presented, to analyze and estimate the behaviour of the dynamic system both for sinusoidal and for step excitation. Finally, the aspects of heat dissipation are presented.
It can be beneficial to look at the tutorial "Quasi-static actuators" before you look into this tutorial.
