Protection systems against ice are conventionally produced by pneumatic or electro-thermal solutions. However, they are characterized by high energy consumption. This article focuses on low-consumption electromechanical deicing solutions. After a state of the art to identify the main features of electromechanical deicing devices, a pre-stressed piezoelectric transducer-based architecture enabling to reach an interesting compromise to meet all requirements is proposed and studied. The architecture is developed using analytical models validated by numerical simulations and complemented by measures on prototypes. These models allow performing trend studies which highlight the resonance modes and the ultrasonic frequency ranges which lead to low-consumption and compact ultrasonic deicing devices.
