Paper Title
Electromechanical Modeling and Simulation of Piezoelectric Energy Harvester using MATLAB SIMULINK
Ambient vibration based energy harvesting using piezoelectric harvester has been of great interest for researchers for low power wireless or self sufficient applications. As energy harvested in this case not only depends on vibration input level but greatly depends on properties, dimensions and characteristics of piezoelectric material used for harvester also. In this paper an electromechanical model developed using MATLAB Simulink is presented and validated with experimental result of PVDF and PZT piezoelectric material harvesters. It is also compared with equivalent electrical model used in some past research works. It has been found that electromechanical model gives results quiet proximate to experimental results as well theoretical values. The electromechanical model proved very useful tool for study and analysis of behaviour of different kinds of piezoelectric material for energy harvesting.
