A practical self-powered sensor system with a tunable vibration energy harvester
At PowerMEMS 2012, United States.
02 - 05 Dec 2012.
Vibration energy harvesters are typically narrow-band devices that are designed to operate at line frequency (or a multiple thereof), hence are only suitable for deployment on electrical machinery powered from the grid. Tunable vibration energy harvesters offer the potential to harvest energy in a wider range of applications but have, to date, only been demonstrated in the lab and have not matched the vibration characteristics found on real machines. This paper reports on the considerations, design, and results from deployment of a tunable vibration energy harvesting system aimed at a real application – wireless monitoring of a vehicle ferry engine.
