    • 2. Abstract Advancements in low power electronics in the past decade allow systems to run off of progressively less energy and even eliminate the need for external power supplies completely. The key to self-sustaining electronics is the ability to harness energy from the surrounding environment and turn it into usable electrical energy, or Energy Harvesting. In many industrial applications, ambient energy is readily available in the form of mechanical vibrations. Piezoelectric ceramics provide a compact, energy dense means of transducing mechanical vibrations of the environment to electrical power. Harvesting power with a commercially available piezoelectric vibration powered generator using a full-wave rectifier conditioning circuit is experimentally compared for varying sinusoidal, random and sine on random (SOR) input vibration scenarios. Much of the available literature focuses on maximizing harvested power through theoretical predictions and power processing circuits that require accurate knowledge of generator internal electromechanical characteristics and idealization of input vibration, which cannot be assumed in general application. Characteristics of complex vibration sources significantly alter power generation and processing requirements, likely rendering idealized analysis inaccurate. Going beyond idealized steady state sinusoidal and simplified random vibration input, SOR testing allows for more accurate representation of real world ambient vibration and is an invaluable tool in harvester development.March, 2013 Sigma Xi - Student Resarch Showcase 2

    • 47. Discussion and DesignImplicationsMarch, 2013 Sigma Xi - Student Resarch Showcase 47
    • 48. Discussion and Design Implications Steady state, sinusoidal vibration is the most ideal form of input vibration Only requires design for natural frequency and optimal impedance Lower frequencies harvest more power for similar amplitudes No significant voltage fluctuations No time dependencies Rarely seen application Random vibration is the least ideal form of input vibration Only requires design for natural frequency and optimal impedance Significantly less efficient than sinusoidal In order to harvest significant power spectral densities, more than 1e-3 g2/Hz are typically needed Usually only 1e-6 to 1e-4 g2/Hz in application [2,8,32] Overshadowed by voltage fluctuations, requires additional charge control circuitryMarch, 2013 Sigma Xi - Student Resarch Showcase 48
    • 49. Discussion and Design Implications Designing a harvester for use with complex vibration sources requires acknowledgement of more characteristic factors than sinusoidal or random vibration Sinusoidal frequencies, number of sinusoidal components, separation between sinusoidal components, random spectral density profile, determination of optimal impedance Ignoring random content or nearby sinusoidal content gives a poor representation of harvested power and load voltage Ignoring random content gives incorrect optimal impedance Harvested power gains from additional random component or multiple sinusoidal components are overshadowed by induced voltage fluctuations Improper source vibration and harvester response representation during development hurts application Lowers power harvesting ability and efficiency Omitting necessary voltage control and processing circuitry can bring about unexpected consequences such as inaccurate sensor readings, poor circuit functionality and possible damage to target electronicsMarch, 2013 Sigma Xi - Student Resarch Showcase 49
    • 50. Conclusion Idealized sinusoidal and random vibration studies are NOT sufficient for general harvester development Environments with sufficiently low noise or random vibration levels and sufficiently spread dominant frequencies may suffice Theoretical and numerical predictions hinge upon exact knowledge of transducer mechanical and electrical properties This cannot be assumed in general Internal transducer electrical and mechanical properties are unknown unless custom developed by applicant Sine on random vibration testing and experimental validation is an essential tool in harvester development SOR testing can recreate almost any vibration environment SOR control can provide accurate quantitative results when harvesting from complex vibrational sourcesMarch, 2013 Sigma Xi - Student Resarch Showcase 50
