Piezoelectric Converter Test Results
A model to predict the output of piezoelectric generators was developed and discussed in the previous chapter. This model was validated with a prototype to ensure its accuracy and suitability of for use as a basis for design optimization. Optimal designs were generated and discussed. Actual converters were designed and built based on these optimizations. This chapter will discuss.the implementation of these converters and present test results showing the improvement of the optimal designs. The converters have been used to power small wireless sensor devices, and results from such tests will also be presented.
