Due to the advantages of DEAP (Dielectric Electro Active Polymer) material, such as light weight, noise free operation,
high energy and power density and fast response speed, it can be applied in a variety of applications to replace the
conventional transducers or actuators. This paper introduces DEAP actuator to the heating valve system and conducts a
case study to discuss the feasible solution in designing DEAP actuator and its driver for heating valve application. First
of all, the heating valves under study are briefly introduced. Then the design and the development for DEAP actuator is
illustrated in detail, and followed by the detailed investigation of the HV driver for DEAP actuator. In order to verify the
implementation, the experimental measurements are carried out for DEAP actuator, its HV driver as well as the entire
heating valve system.
