Energy harvesting from piezoelectric textile fibres
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2014

In the present paper, energy harvesting properties of a recently developed piezoelectric textile bi-component fiber were investigated. This study covers fiber manufacturing, weaving of the textile, high voltage polarization, addition of outer electrode, modeling and measurement of the piezoelectric textile ability to convert mechanical strain to electrical energy. The results show that it is possible to scavenge around 0.7 mW of power from the fibers in the textile.
