Piezoelectric cantilevers are widely used in vibration energy harvesting. Simple cantilever-based harvesters are mostly unidirectional. In this article, we develop a cantilever-pendulum system that can harvest vibratory energy of excitations from an arbitrary direction. The new design consists of a traditional piezoelectric cantilever with a pendulum attached to the tip. It is shown analytically and experimentally that with proper parametric combination this system can induce modal energy… CONTINUE READING
