Exponentially Tapered Bimorph Piezoelectric Vibration Energy Harvester.

Reske-Nielsen, Mikkel.

Abstract: This thesis examines the effectiveness of an exponentially tapered piezoelectric plate for use as a vibration energy harvester (VEH). Typically piezoelectric energy harvesters have been designed as cantilever beams or "cymbal" type structures. For these devices there is a known resonant frequency at which displacement is maximized to produce maximum power. While this can produce good res... read more
