The relevance of the use of various functional elements of piezoelectronics in biomedical informational and measuring systems is explained by their high reliability, small dimensions and weight. These aspects greatly facilitate the solution of the problem of miniaturization of such systems. Because of the absence of reliable and valid methods of bimorph piezoelectric transducer’s mathematical model constructing the need is to solve the problem of the excitation of transverse bending oscillations in bimorph piezoelectric element. Construction and features of mathematical description of axisymmetric transverse bending oscillations in bimorph piezoelectric element are considered. The solution of the problem of transverse bending oscillations excitation in bimorph piezoelectric element by the difference of electric potentials is obtained.
