The purpose of this study was development of the rotation type actuator that applied the EHD phenomenon. The EHD is a phenomenon that generates the flow in the insulating fluid by applying a high voltage electric field. In this study, firstly, the electrode arrangement which makes the strong EHD phenomenon was investigated and the EHD motor applying that electrode arrangement was developed. In the next step, the EHD motor using the developed electrode arrangement was manufactured as an experiment. Then, the electrode arrangement of the EHD motor was changed, and the performance change of the EHD motor was examined.
