Dielectric Nano-Fluid For Electrostatic Machines And Actuators
WARF: P190170US01

Inventors: Daniel Ludois, Daniel Klingenberg, Kevin Frankforter

The Invention
An electrostatic machine employs a high dielectric fluid comprised of a dielectric liquid with suspended dielectric particles. Electrorheological effects are minimized through small particle sizes and steric coatings on those particles limiting the minimum particle-to-particle distance. Low particle volume densities provide greater torque density with managed reduced viscosity.
