22 March 2018 Characteristics of energy harvesting using BaTiO3/Cu laminates with changes in temperature
Author Affiliations +
The energy harvesting characteristics of piezoelectric/copper (BaTiO3/Cu) laminates rising from sharp temperature changes were investigated both numerically and experimentally. First, a phase field simulation was performed to determine the temperature-dependent piezoelectric coefficient and permittivity values. Then, the output voltages of the BaTiO3/Cu laminates were calculated for variations from room temperature to either a cryogenic temperature (77 K) or a higher temperature (333 K) using a 3D finite element simulation with the properties calculated from the phase field simulation. Finally, the output voltages of the piezoelectric BaTiO3/Cu laminates were measured for the same temperature changes and were compared to the simulation results.
