Description

Mechanical Design of Piezoelectric Energy Harvesters provides the state-of-the-art recent mechanical designs of piezoelectric energy harvesters based on piezoelectric stacks. This book discusses innovative mechanism designs for energy harvesting from multidimensional force excitation such as human walking, which offers higher energy density. Coverage also includes analytical modelling, optimal design, simulation study, prototype fabrication, and experimental investigation. Detailed examples of their analyses and implementations are provided.

The authors provide a unique perspective on this field, primarily focusing on novel designs for PZT Energy harvesting in biomedical engineering as well as in integrated multi-stage force amplification frame. This book presents force-amplification compliant mechanism design and force direction-transmission mechanism design. It explores new mechanism design approaches using piezoelectric materials and permanent magnets. Readers can expect to learn how to design new mechanisms to realize multidimensional energy harvesting systems.
