DE EAP(Dielectric Elastomer ElectroActive Polymer) has advantages in its weight, ease of fabrication and low power consumption. There are many efforts applied to various field in recent ten years. But the present modeling is not enough to appear its characteristics because of its hysteresis. In this paper, we propose modeling of DE EAP with Preisach Model that is used in order to model the hysteretic response arising in PZT and SMA. The modeling of DE EAP with Presach model is verified by experiment with various DE EAP actuators.
