This paper investigates the frequency response of microplates under electrostatic actuation. The microplate is parallel to a fixed ground plate. The electrostatic force that actuates the system is given by both Alternate Current (AC) and Direct Current (DC) voltages. The AC frequency is set to be near half natural frequency of the structure. Damping influence is also investigated in this paper. The method of investigation is Reduced Order Model. The effects of various parameters on the response of the structure are reported.
