Need of Designing Piezo Electric Energy Harvesting System

Postby rajkr » Fri Nov 01, 2013 11:07 am

Dear Friends,
I need to make self power sensor for HVAC system with no batteries. Instead the system shall be able to get the required energy from the vibration of the mechanical systems. For this I need to Design a Piezo electric system which may produce electricity, also I want to know which FWR and buck convertor do I need ( I searched and got one on internet as LM3588-1 and LM3588-2) . If any one has any knowledge Energy harvesting using piezoelectric system, may please help me.

If you are referring to Linear Tech's LTC3588-1; you may want to study the datasheet here.
Pages 14 - 16 have examples on different configurations for Piezo Electric Energy Harvesting applications.
