Energy scavenging research shows a growing interest these last years. This paper aims to demonstrate the ability of micromachined vibrating structures to store mechanical energy and then to convert it into electrical energy through a piezoelectric plate. Such a micro power generator may be used as a mechanical to electrical energy transformer. The energy conversion consists in a mechanical shock enabling to convert low vibrating energy levels at very low frequencies (typically below 10 Hz for… CONTINUE READING
