At present, energy harvesting from the widely existing fluid in the environment is a hot research field. Piezoelectric flags can be used to generate electric energy with the flow excitation for its positive piezoelectric effect. In this paper, the energy harvesting capacity of two piezoelectric flags in tandem arrangement in the uniform flow is analyzed through 2D numerical simulation. Identical vibration frequency and larger vibration amplitude of the downstream flag are found compared with… CONTINUE READING
