This paper presents a wireless diaphragm actuator and focuses on a lumped parameter grey-box model capable of simulating actuation displacement. Here, modelling aims to provide further insight into this smart material actuator and help facilitate design into new implantable applications. Model parameters were calibrated to a prototype actuator using experimental data and a genetic algorithm optimisation. The model was validated against experimental data and showed a good ability to simulate both static and dynamic diaphragm displacement.
