abstract

Recent efforts in power harvesting systems have concentrated primarily on the optimization of isolated energy conversion techniques, such as piezoelectric, electromagnetic, solar, or thermal generators, but have focused less on combining different energy transducer types and have placed less emphasis on storing the converted energy for use by other devices. The purpose of this work is to analyze and present an integrated piezoelectric and electromagnetic power harvesting system utilizing existing technology for energy management and storage. Primary emphasis is on the analysis of the combination of existing, or readily obtainable, energy conversion techniques, operating as a single system, and the energy conversion efficiency of the alternating to direct current management, or storage, circuit.
