Experimental and theoretical correlations for energy harvesting from a large flapping flag response


Journal Article

© 2019 Elsevier Ltd Two experimental models are constructed, i.e. partially covered and fully covered, cantilevered plates with piezoelectric piezo patches and film sensors. Two different experimental methods are used to obtain large flapping vibrations, a mechanically forced vibration and a limit cycle oscillation from an aeroelastic responses. AC voltage outputs from the piezo patch or film sensors and a DC power extraction through a AC/DC converter circuit are obtained. These experiments are used to evaluate a new computational model and code for a piezoelectric-aeroelastic system.
