A novel thick-film piezoelectric micro-generator

White, N.M., Glynne-Jones, P. and Beeby, S.P. (2001) A novel thick-film piezoelectric micro-generator Smart Materials and Structures, 10, (4), pp. 850-852. (doi:10.1088/0964-1726/10/4/403).

Record type: Article


The use of alternative electrical energy sources to batteries is of particular significance to remote sensor systems. A vibration-powered micro-generator, based on a screen printed piezoelectric material, is proposed for this purpose. Theoretical and experimental results show that 2 µW can be generated for a vibration frequency of only 80 Hz. The device is not optimized and significant improvements are envisaged in the future.
