Case study on piezoelectric harvesting mat
Hello sir, This is rahul. I am doing a project titled "piezoelectric harvesting mat". The concept of this is whenever you step on that mat, it generates certain milli volts and that energy is getting stored in a rechargeable battery. So what we are doing is.. We are preparing a mat of 216 by 55cms(7 by 2 feet) mat... Filled with 480 piezoelectric disc's.. And the problem we are facing is.. Our staff is considering this as a minor project.. N they want us to do case studies... But I want prove them that this can be a startup.. A new alternative source of energy... I hope you people can helpe out... In case studies or in any other issues
Case studies like.. How many foot steps are required to charge a battery..
What is the maximum weight that it can bare..
What is the maximum voltage..
Like these questions..
And if there is any extension I could add further
Hoping out for a good response
Thank you all..!
Not done with the hardware yet... Once done.. Will start case studies.
Doing research.. Collecting data from various available sources...
Read a paper about piezoelectric tiles in kuala Lumpur... Seems beneficial to our project.
I had the same idea for my school project, the problem was they DON'T SELL piezoelectric generators in my country so i had to change it, i wish you told us how the project is going and gives us more information
Thank you sir.
