SC1075: Methods of Energy Harvesting for Low-Power Sensors
This course focuses on the transformation of mechanical energy into low-power electricity with an emphasis on vibration-based energy harvesting. A primary goal is to describe the methods of mechanical energy harvesting to use in low-power sensors. Piezoelectric, electromagnetic, electrostatic and magnetostrictive conversion mechanisms will be discussed along with the use of electroactive polymers. Special focus will be placed on piezoelectric materials due to their substantially large power density and ease of application at different geometric scales. System-level modeling and analysis, power density levels, storage devices, deterministic and random energy harvesting, kinetic energy harvesting, flow energy harvesting from aeroelastic and hydroelastic vibrations, acoustic energy harvesting and nonlinear energy harvesting for frequency bandwidth enhancement will be addressed.
