English abstract:
The paper carries on our previous investigations on the complementary version of Purcell's rotator (sPr3): a low-Reynolds number swimmer composed of three balls of equal radii. In the asymptotic regime of very long arms, the Stokes induced governing dynamics is derived and then experimented in the context of energy minimizing self-propulsion characterized in the first part of the paper.
