Small Energy Harvesting

I, Machine and Energy Harvesting


Vibration Energy Harvesting

With the piezoelectric effect Vibration Energy Harvesting can be done. Mechanical energy in the form of vibration or shock can be convert into electrical energy in using a piezo module.
I use the Mide PPA 1001 module bought by mouser: https://www.mouser.de/new/Mide-Technology/mide-ppa-piezoelectric-products/

Solar Energy Harvesting

Thermoelectric Energy Harvesting

The Thermoelectric Energy Harvesting is done with the Seebeck effect, one phenomenon of the thermoelectric effect. A Peltier module can be used for that.
