Improving the power generation characteristics of piezoelectric energy harvesters requires the construction of piezoelectric ceramics with high transduction coefficient (d33 × g33), which remains a big challenge. In this paper, guided by piezoelectric energy harvester applications, the relationship between the composition, microstructure and transduction coefficient of (1 − x)BiScO3–xPbTiO3 material is systematically studied. The results demonstrated that the sample with a composition of x = 0.64 not only has a high Curie temperature (426 °C) which is beneficial to improve the working stability of the device, but also has a very high d33 × g33 value (15,110 × 10−15 m2/N), which is significantly superior to the commercial PZT system. Excellent electrical performance can be attributed to the fact that the composition of x = 0.64 located near MPB has a very high piezoelectric charge constant (505 pC/N) at the same time with moderate dielectric constant (1907). The cantilever-type energy harvester made of optimized composition generated a high output power density of 2.93 μW/mm3 at room temperature, which charged a commercial 47 μF electrolytic capacitor to 22 V in just 220 s and lighted up 72 LEDs for 0.1~0.2 s. Further, x = 0.64 harvester exhibited a large output voltage of 2.76 V even at 350 °C, suggesting its potential use for powering high temperature wireless sensors.
