Abstract: With the advancement in the technologies around the world over the past few years, the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have gained much attention in harvesting the energy for wireless, self-powered and MEMS devices. In the present era, many devices are available for energy harnessing such as electromagnetic, electrostatic and piezoelectric generator and these devices are designed based on its ability to capture the different form of environment energy such as solar energy, wind energy, thermal energy and convert it into the useful energy form. Out of these devices, the use of a piezoelectric generator for energy harvesting is very attractive for MEMS applications. There are various sources of harvestable energy including waste heat, solar energy, wind energy, energy in floating water and mechanical vibrations which are used by the researchers for energy harvesting purposes. This paper reviews the state-of-the-art in harvesting mechanical vibrations as an energy source by various generators (such as electromagnetic, electrostatic and piezoelectric generators). Also, the design and characteristics of piezoelectric generators, using vibrations of cantilevered bimorphs, for MEMS have also been reviewed here. Electromagnetic, electrostatic and piezoelectric generators presented in the literature are reviewed by taking into an account the power output, frequency, acceleration, dimension and application of each generator and the coupling factor of each transduction mechanism has also been discussed for all the devices.

Abstract: A piezoelectric generator converts mechanical energy into electricity and is used in energy harvesting devices. In this paper, synchronisation conditions in regard to the excitation vibration are studied. We show that a phase shift of ninety degrees between the vibration excitation and the bender’s displacement provides the maximum power from the mechanical excitation. However, the piezoelectric material is prone to power losses; hence the bender’s displacement amplitude is optimised in order to increase the amount of power which is converted into electricity. In the paper, we use active energy harvesting to control the power flow, and all the results are achieved at a frequency of 200?Hz which is well below the generator’s resonant frequency. 1. Introduction A piezoelectric generator (PEG) [1] can be used to extract energy from ambient vibrations. For that purpose, a proof mass is firmly attached to one end of a bender, while the other end is fixed onto a vibrating case [2]. The voltage supplied to the piezoelectric material produces internal stresses, which create active damping [3]. The power which brakes the movement of the proof mass is not dissipated into heat but is converted into electrical power and fed back to an electrical load. For a given design of the PEG, the harvested power depends on the operating conditions. First, the resonant behaviour of the bender and its proof mass lead to a strong dependency of harvested power on vibrations [2]. Moreover, the impedance of the PEG and of the load should match [4], and, then, there exists an optimal electric load to be connected to the PEG connection [5, 6]. Optimal energy harvesting can be achieved using active solutions. For example, [7] proposes to use a full H-bridge in order to accurately control the voltage supplied to the PEG. For an excitation close to the resonant frequency of the PEG, semiactive (or semipassive) solutions can also be used. The SSHI technique, for example, uses a switched inductor to reverse the voltage across the piezoelectric generator and synchronises the voltage on maxima and minima of the displacement [8]. The SECE technique [9] uses a flyback topology to extract the charges for the piezoelectric generator at each maximum of the voltage. In this way, energy scavenging is obtained at any load value and can be used to charge up a battery, in a wireless communication application [10], for example. In this work, we are using active energy harvesting, because we control the instantaneous voltage across the piezoelectric material. However, this voltage is not synchronised

Abstract: An electroaeroelastic model for wind energy harvesting using piezoelectric generators is presented. The flow field is mapped in detail. The force which the fluid flow exerts on the generator is formulated. The output voltage levels generated from the mechanical strain within the piezoelectric elements are determined. An analytical model is developed with consideration of the interactions between the fluid, solid and electric. Various analytical results are obtained, such as flow velocity contour and pressure contour for the flow, moving trajectories, stress contour and output voltage of the harvester. A prototype is fabricated and tested. The simulation result is close to the experimental result. The model developed in this paper can predict the performance and behavior of different energy harvesters. And it also can be used as a design tool for optimizing the performance of the harvester.

In order to improve the performance of micro piezoelectric generator, a design of flexible cantilever-beam piezoelectric generator was proposed. The influence of the beam's shapes and parameters on the output voltage of the piezoelectric generator, through theory and experiments was studied. Therefore a generator with appropriate structure parameters, such as length, width and substrate thickness will resonate easily on given wind speed, which helps to improve the power capacity of generator. Within a given wind speed range of 0 to 50 m/s, the power generating capacity of the flexible piezoelectric generator with different dimensions was researched. The experimental results imply that, the thickness of the substrate almost doesn't affect the power performance with resonance, but the length and width of generator has a greater influence on the output voltage, and the output voltage is not monotone increasing with the length and the width. The optimum length of piezoelectric generator is 40 mm, and the width is 11.3 mm.
