Abstract

Piezoelectric energy harvesting has received great attention over the last 20 years. The main goal of this work is to discuss the potential advantages of introducing non-linearities in the dynamics of a beam type piezoelectric vibration energy harvester. The described device is essentially a cantilever beam partially covered by piezoelectric material with a force electromagnetically applied to the beam. Through experimental tests it has been confirmed the benefits of introducing non-linearities in these types of systems.
