  • 1. PIEZOAEROELASTIC ENERGY HARVESTING Vagner Candido de Sousa – vagner@sc.usp.br Aeronautical Engineering Department Sao Carlos Engineering School University of Sao Paulo – Brazil PASI Workshop 2012Computational Material Science for Energy Generation and Conversion January 9 – 20, Santiago, Chile
  • 2. Outline• Vibration-based energy harvesting• E.H. from aeroelastic vibrations• Piezoelectrically coupled airfoil typical section• Case Studies – Linear model (interaction power - aeroelastic response) – Nonlinear model (broadband generation)• Conclusions
  • 3. Vibration-based energy harvesting• Motivation – Vibrations are available in the environment – Additional (long-term) power source – Reduced power requirement of small devices• Flow-induced energy harvesting – Aeroelastic vibrations – Potential application: UAV• Piezoelectric transduction (direct effect)
  • 4. Airfoil section for energy harvesting2-DOF (Erturk et al., 2010) 3-DOF (Tang and Dowell, 2010) • DOFs: plunge (h), pitch (α) and control surface rotation (β)

  • 7. The experimental system
  • 8. 2-DOF Linear piezoaeroelastic response• Load resistances (Rl): 102, 103, 104, 105 and 106 Ω2-DOF ULF = 12 m/s
  • 9. 2-DOF Linear piezoaeroelastic response
  • 10. The “linear problem”• U∞ < ULF: damped oscillation• U ∞ > ULF: growing amplitudes of oscillation• U ∞ = ULF: the ideal scenario for energy harvesting – U ∞ = ULF is a very particular situation• Nonlinear model – Opportunity for persistent power generation
  • 11. Nonlinear model• Structural nonlinearities can induce subcritical LCOs• The linear torsional spring is replaced by a bilinear spring I   ( I   b(c  a ) S  )   S h  d   k   f fp ( )  M        k  fp    fp  f fp ( )   0  fp     fp  k     fp   fp2-DOF with bilinear spring 3-DOF with bilinear spring Sousa et al., 2011, Smart Mat. Struc. 3-DOF: Power with airspeed (70% ~ 98% ULF)
  • 12. Summary and conclusions• Piezoaeroelastically coupled typical section for energy harvesting• Harvests energy from linear and nonlinear aeroelastic vibrations• Nonlinear aeroelastic phenomena can provide persistent power generation in a wide range of airflow velocities
