The application of piezoelectric cantilever actuators in the field of MEMS is rapidly increasing. Thus there is a need of high precision manufacturing, which leads to a remarkable demand of preliminary computation. With aligned simulation methods it is feasible to provide a fast and efficient design with the advantage of detailed knowledge of the provided micro-electro-mechanical system. Recent progress in the field of wafer bonding enhances the usability of piezoceramic wafers for MEMS. For the development of new applications a design with respect to technological aspects is necessary. In this work we present a strategy to gain efficient models of piezoelectric cantilever actuators, which are used as transducing elements in sensor and especially actuator applications. A useful linkage between Finite-Element (FE)- and Lumped-Element (LE)-modelling the -Combined Simulation- is presented.
