How Does Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting Generate Power?

In this short video the process of piezoelectric energy harvesting is explained. By simply showing how the piezoelectric effect is used to convert mechanical to electrical energy, it is possible to harvest energy in a wide range of different applications.

The video highlights how piezoelectric ceramic patches utilise a mechanical load to generate electricity, powering an LED. It also shows that through the use of super capacitors, it is possible to deliver continuous charge, increasing the potential in real world applications.

Finally some of the existing uses of piezoelectric energy harvesting are highlighted, such as using passing trains to power LED signs.
