Original Abstract

The paper deals with an analysis of maximal operation amplitudes of piezoelectric energy harvesting systems generating electrical energy from ambient vibrations. Energy harvesting systems could be very interesting alternative for autonomous powering of ultra-low power electronics, sensors and wireless communication. A design of piezoelectric vibration energy harvester is based on the cantilever beam design with active piezoelectric layers. The output power is proportional to an amplitude of relative oscillation of this resonance mechanism. This paper presents an analysis based on the simulation model of multidisciplinary piezoelectric energy harvesting device, enabling an optimization of its key parameters ensuring a maximal efficiency of the system. Such analysis is also essential for development of new energy harvesting systems formed of new smart materials and structures which could be integrated in future development processes.
