Synchronized Switching on Inductor for Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting

Guyomar etal. [3] extended the synchronized switch damping technique of Richard etal. [15] to energy harvesting and introduced an effective technique called synchronized switch harvesting on inductor (SSHI). They reported that the harvested power can be increased (compared to the standard AC-DC conversion scheme covered in Section 11.1) as much as 250 to 900% depending […]

Performance Comparison of the PZT-5A and PZT-5H Cantilevers

The focus is placed on the fundamental short-circuit resonance frequencies of these cantilevers in order to compare their electrical performance results. For excitations at these frequencies, the variations of the voltage and current outputs with load resistance are shown in Figures 10.20 and 10.21, respectively. Only for very low values of load resistance does the […]
