Converts normally wasted mechanical energy in the form of vibrations into usable electrical energy. It uses the piezoelectric effect to generate energy from Vibrations.
Some sources are Machinery in Oil and Gas drilling to refining. Machines in Industry and Manufacturing. Wind, Tide, streams also can be harnesses with small fixtures, jigs or devices for vibration sensor arrays.
Applications – Wireless Sensors and small instruments need a way to recharge their lithium cells or even supercaps. Using solar and vibration harvesting, enough power can be derived to power efficient electronics. Recharge small computers and tablets.
Midé’s VLT-9001 piezoelectric energy harvesting kit has everything you need to start harvesting vibration energy. The kit includes the PPA-2011 piezo and the PPA-9001 clamp kit that has hardware necessary for clamping and adding tip masses.
