AbstractMechanical energy harvesters are designed to capture the ambient energy and transform it into usable electrical energy. Power harvesting from mechanical vibrations is the fundamental step toward providing self-powered smart systems in the developing wireless and portable electronic devices marketplace. This paper presents a new design and an analytical model for the development of a composite energy harvester by using piezoelectric stacks. The in-plane polarization of the piezoelectric elements and the flexible electrode design using piezoelectric stacks are introduced to maximize the electrical voltage/charge output. The presented model is applicable to composite beams with structural strain rate damping and embedded piezoelectric stacks. The steady state vibration response of the composite harvester subjected to a harmonic base motion is obtained and electrical outputs are analytically derived. Moreover, a parametric study for the composite energy harvester with different embedded piezoelectric stacks number, length and thickness under the excitation in a wide frequency domain has been done. Finally, the new design is compared to a conventional unimorph harvester with identical geometrical and material properties to demonstrate the potential significant improvement in the electrical charge and voltage outputs.
