Harvesting Wind Energy Using Piezoelectric Flag

43 Views
Published
We are harvesting wind energy using a piezoelectric flag installed on the rooftop of Garland Hall in Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD. The harvested energy is being used to power a temperature sensor. One can see the wind speed conditions (i.e. speed and direction) and the voltage readings from the flag and temperature sensor.
