Short summary
This article contains new propositions for modelling piezoelectric stack models by using existing classical and non-classical methods with the aim of improving piezoelectric stack capabilities. Polynomial chain fractioning is used to obtain a mechanical model with a cascade structure. To verify model output frequencies and amplitudes, edge graphs and structural numbers are used. With the help of Kelvin–Voigt, Mason and Maxwell slip models, an electromechanical model solutions are proposed.
