Design, Modelling and Simulation of Hybrid Vibration Energy Harvesting System using Integration of Piezoelectricity and ElectroMagnetism
Keywords:Piezoelectricity, electro-magnetic induction, renewable, harvesting
In this paper, a hybrid vibration energy harvesting system based on piezoelectricity and electro-magnetic devices is modelled and simulated in a software environment. The integrated system includes harvesting devices, power electronics and the load. The converter is controlled to maintain proper voltage and current at the load side. Simulation results are provided to show the operation of each device in the integrated harvesting system.
