© 2018 by the authors. The piezoelectric-actuated flexure-based compliant platform is commonly adopted in many fields of micro and nanotechnology. In this paper, bond graph modeling, and kinematic and dynamic characteristics of a piezoelectric-actuated micro-/nano compliant platform system are investigated. During modeling, the bond graph model of the piezoelectric actuator (PZT) is derived by considering both the electrical domain and the mechanical domain. Considering the compliances of flexure hinges and elastic linkages, as well as the input ends, the bond graph model for the bridge-type displacement amplification mechanism in the compliant platform is established by combining pseudo-rigid-body (PRB) model theory and elastic beam theory. Based on the interactions between the PZT subsystem and compliant platform subsystem, the kinematic performance of the proposed compliant platform system is evaluated through both computer simulations and experimental tests. Furthermore, the frequency responses, dynamic responses and load capacity of the compliant platform system are studied. This paper explores a new modeling method for a piezoelectric-actuated compliant platform system, which can provide an effective solution when analyzing the micro-/nano system.
