1. Resonant frequency of bimorph triangular V-shaped piezoelectric cantilever energy harvester

Rouhollah Hosseini; Mohsen Hamedi

Volume 6, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2016, , Pages 65-73

  The concept of “energy harvesting” is to design smart systems to capture the ambient energy and to convert it to usable electrical power for supplying small electronics devices and sensors. The goal is to develop autonomous and self-powered devices that do not need any replacement of traditional ...  Read More

Perturbation Technique
2. A study on the use of perturbation technique for analyzing the nonlinear forced response of piezoelectric microcantilevers

M. Zamanian; M. Hadilu; B. Firouzi

Volume 5, Issue 2 , Winter and Spring 2016, , Pages 161-172

  In this paper, a comparison is made between direct and indirect perturbation approaches to solve the non-linear vibration equations of a piezoelectrically actuated cantilever microbeam. In this comparison, the equation of motion is considered according to Euler-Bernoulli theory with considering the non-linear ...  Read More
