Piezo-pumps, in the last decade, have received extensive attention because of their potential applications in biomedical devices, biological and chemical analysis, micro-electronics cooling and space exploration. In this paper an analytical model is developed to analysis the parameters effect on the pump flow. The micro-pump driven by piezostack (PZT alloy multilayer) as actuator is studied as function size and working middle. This one is compared with SCMCP pump actuated by PZT alloy as piezomembrane. The flow change as a function frequency, the chamber diameter and control voltage are analyzed. The simulation results obtained with two different liquids (water and blood) as working middle are discussed and compared with experimental results. The results are satisfactory.
