Project Description and Objectives
Through theoretical and experimental investigations, the dynamic model of electromechanical coupling of a multi-directional vibration piezoelectric energy harvester is presented and validated. The parameter analysis and optimization design is provided, which is conducive to the application of vibration energy harvesting in practice.
The project mainly investigates the dynamic characteristics of the nonlinear vibration energy harvester. This study aims to reveal the relationship between design parameters and the performance of vibration energy harvesters, and to provide theoretical and technical support for the design and development of self-powered microelectronic devices. The project aims to propose a multi-directional vibration energy harvester for uncertain sources in the ambient environment.
Interested students should have the basic knowledge of applied mechanics or mechanical engineering.
