BPN341: Plastic Energy Harvester

Project ID BPN341
Website
Start Date Fri 2006-Jan-20 15:21:20
Last Updated Wed 2006-Aug-23 19:28:53
Abstract This project aims to develop a plastic energy harvesting system by utilizing piezoelectric ceramics to scavenge energy from natural motions for self-powered sensor applications. Plastic molding processes will be employed to achieve a low cost and high reliability/repeatability manufacturing process. Several piezoelectric configurations such as uni-morphs(THUNDER?), bimorphs as well as multilayers will be explored with particular focus on power maximization and highly-reliable structures in order to survive harsh environment. The ultimate goal will be the development of low-cost, plastic energy harvester capable for integrating with sensor and electronics as a single self-powered sensing system.
