  • Will Composite Nanomaterials Replace Piezoelectric Thin Films for Energy Transduction Applications?

    Semiconducting piezoelectric nanowires (NWs) show significant potential for application in electronic and electromechanical sensors and energy harvesters. In particular, these nanostructures can be used to build composite piezoelectric materials that could offer several advantages when integrated vertically. First, NWs of various lengths opens the possibility to fabricate composite layers thicker than standard thin films (<4 ¿¿m). Second, low¿¿¿temperature fabrication process make this technology compatible with CMOS devices and with different substrates, such as Si, polymers, plastics, metal foils, and even paper. Third, properties such as piezoelectricity, flexibility, and dielectric constant can be improved in NWs, thereby improving the performance of NW¿¿¿containing composite materials. Finally, FEM simulations show that composites can provide better performance compared to piezoelectric thin films of the same thickness, and that performance can be improved by operating in compression or flexion modes by the right choice of the dielectric matrix and NW density.

  • Design and Fabrication of Flexible Piezoelectric Generators Based on ZnO Thin Films

    The piezoelectric transducer for vibration-energy harvesting is constructed of a piezoelectric layer, bottom electrode and a top electrode. In order to obtain an appropriate transducer for the low-frequency operating; environmentally-friendly and long-term, the flexible substrate, the piezoelectric layer, and the additional mass-loading have been investigated thoroughly. Firstly, flexible piezoelectric harvesters based on ZnO (Zinc Oxide) thin films for self-powering and broad bandwidth applications. The design and simulation of a piezoelectric cantilever plate was described by using commercial software ANSYS FEA (finite element analysis) to determine the optimum thickness of PET substrate, internal stress distribution, operation frequency and electric potential. A modified design of a flexible piezoelectric energy-harvesting system with a serial bimorph of ZnO piezoelectric thin film was presented to enhance significantly higher power generation. This high-output system was examined at 15 Hz. The maximum DC (direct current) voltage output voltage with loading was 3.18 V, and the maximum DC power remained at 2.89 ¿¿W/cm2. Secondly, this investigation fabricates double-sided piezoelectric transducers for harvesting vibration- power. The double-sided piezoelectric transducer is constructed by depositing piezoelectric thin films. The Ti (titanium) and Pt (platinum) layers were deposited using a dual-gun DC sputtering system between the piezoelectric thin film and the back side of the SUS304 substrate. The maximum open circuit voltage of the double-sided ZnO power transducer is approximately 18 V. After rectification and filtering through a 33 nF capacitor, a specific power output of 1.3 ¿¿W/cm2 is obtained from the double-sided ZnO transducer with a load resistance of 6 M?>

  • Design and Fabrication of Electrospun PVDF Piezo-Energy Harvesters

    Nanogenerators capable of converting energy from mechanical sources to electricity with high effective efficiency using low-cost, nonsemiconducting, organic nanomaterials are attractive for many applications, including energy harvesters. In this work, near-field electrospinning is used to direct-write poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) nanofibers with in situ mechanical stretch and electrical poling characteristics to produce piezoelectric properties. Under mechanical stretching, nanogenerators have shown repeatable and consistent electrical outputs with energy conversion efficiency an order of magnitude higher than those made of PVDF thin films. The early onset of the nonlinear domain wall motions behavior has been identified as one mechanism responsible for the apparent high piezoelectricity in nanofibers, rendering them potentially advantageous for sensing and actuation applications.

  • Operator-Based Nonlinear Control Systems with Smart Actuators

    Smart materials such as piezoelectric elements, shape memory alloys (SMAs), and ionic polymer-metal composites (IPMCs), are applied widely to make actuators. However, backlash and hysteretic behaviors exist widely in the smart materials and affect the performance of actuators. To compensate the effect of the backlash and hysteretic behavior, operator-based nonlinear control designs are developed. This chapter discusses the design of operator- based controller based on the robust condition and the exponential iteration theorem. The stability and output tracking performance of the nonlinear plant with uncertain nonsymmetric backlash are guaranteed by the controller. The chapter describes a nonsymmetric Prandtl-Ishlinskii (PI) model hysteresis model using a nonsymmetric play hysteresis operator with unknown slopes was given to express hysteretic behavior. Nonlinear plants with the obtained hysteresis model are stabilized by a robust controller designed using the robust stability condition. Experimental results to control three types of actuators are also described in the chapter.
