A SURVEY ON EFFICIENT PIEZOELECTRIC ENERGY HARVESTING TECHNIQUES AND THEIR APPLICATIONS
Publication Date : 26/04/2016
Energy harvesting is the process of foraging electrical energy from energy sources available in the environment. This paper reviews energy harvesting technology using PZT as the specific piezoceramic material with its modules to determine the capacitance for optimal energy-storage in piezoelectric vibration energy harvesting (VEH) systems . It reviews various applications of piezoelectric energy harvesting from different sources . The PSPICE software can be used to determine the optimal energy-storage capacitance in a VEH system with one or more piezoelectric modules. By the simulation, the optimal capacitance of the storage capacitor can be determined to obtain a maximum energy storage power. Keywords- piezoelectric, PSPICE, vibration energy harvesting (VEH).
