    Theoretical Analysis of the Galloping Energy Harvesters under Bounded Random Parameter Excitation

    Hang Deng, Jimin Ye*, Wei Li*, Dongmei Huang

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.137, No.2, pp. 1731-1747, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.028334

    Abstract In this paper, the response properties of galloping energy harvesters under bounded random parameter excitation are studied theoretically. The first-order approximate solution of the galloping energy harvester is derived by applying the multi-scales method. The expression for the largest Lyapunov exponent that determines the trivial solution is derived, and the corresponding simulation diagrams, including the largest Lyapunov exponent diagrams and time domain diagrams, verify our results. Then the steady-state response moments of the nontrivial solution are studied using the moment method, and the analytical expressions for the first-order and second-order moments of the voltage amplitude are obtained, respectively. The corresponding… More >

    Experimental Investigation of Performance Characteristics of PZT-5A with Application to Fault Diagnosis

    Saqlain Abbas1,2, Zulkarnain Abbas3,4,*, Yanping Zhu2, Waqas Tariq Toor5, Xiaotong Tu6

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 307-321, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.015266

    Abstract In the previous couple of decades, techniques to reap energy and empower low voltage electronic devices have received outstanding attention. Most of the methods based on the piezoelectric effect to harvest the energy from ambient vibrations have been revolutionized. There’s an absence of experiment-based investigation which incorporates the microstructure analysis and crystal morphology of those energy harvest home materials. Moreover, the impact of variable mechanical and thermal load conditions has seldom been studied within the previous literature to utilize the effectiveness of those materials in several practical applications like structural health monitoring (SHM), etc. In the proposed research work, scanning… More >

    Single Band EBG Antenna for Wireless Power Transfer Applications

    A. M. Almohaimeed1, El Amjed Hajlaoui1,2,*, Ziyad M. Almohaimeed1

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.44, No.2, pp. 1409-1417, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.025738

    Abstract This work demonstrates the design of a single band Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) antenna by employing an open stub EBG microstrip of a patch antenna for better achievements in terms of its performance to be utilized in a reconfigurable harvester to operate over a wide input power range. The EBG antenna has been used to gather RF energy and a FET-transistor has been obtainable to determine and control the power flow with the intention to operate at the same time for a different level of input power. The measured data of the EBG antenna shows a directivity of 8.52 dBi,… More >

    Recent Techniques for Harvesting Energy from the Human Body

    Nidal M. Turab1, Hamza Abu Owida2, Jamal I. Al-Nabulsi2,*, Mwaffaq Abu-Alhaija1

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.40, No.1, pp. 167-177, 2022, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.017973

    Abstract The human body contains a near-infinite supply of energy in chemical, thermal, and mechanical forms. However, the majority of implantable and wearable devices are still operated by batteries, whose insufficient capacity and large size limit their lifespan and increase the risk of hazardous material leakage. Such energy can be used to exceed the battery power limits of implantable and wearable devices. Moreover, novel materials and fabrication methods can be used to create various medical therapies and life-enhancing technologies. This review paper focuses on energy-harvesting technologies used in medical and health applications, primarily power collectors from the human body. Current approaches… More >

    Improving Functionality of 2DOF Piezoelectric Cantilever for Broadband Vibration Energy Harvesting Using Magnets

    Junxiang Jiang1,2, Shaogang Liu1,*, Lifeng Feng3

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.5, pp. 1287-1303, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2021.015354

    Abstract This paper presents a 2DOF nonlinear piezoelectric energy harvester for improving the efficiency of energy harvesting in low frequency range. The device consisted of an L-shaped piezoelectric cantilever with a magnet at the tip of the first beam and two external magnets on the pedestal. The distance between the magnets which generated nonlinear magnetic attraction was adjusted such that the system can exhibit monostable or bistable characteristics. First, the model of this piezoelectric energy harvester was established and the dynamic equation was derived based on the magnetic attractive force. Then, the nonlinear dynamic responses of the system subject to harmonic… More >

    A Local Sparse Screening Identification Algorithm with Applications

    Hao Li1,2, Zhixia Wang1,2, Wei Wang1,2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.124, No.2, pp. 765-782, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.010061

    Abstract Extracting nonlinear governing equations from noisy data is a central challenge in the analysis of complicated nonlinear behaviors. Despite researchers follow the sparse identification nonlinear dynamics algorithm (SINDy) rule to restore nonlinear equations, there also exist obstacles. One is the excessive dependence on empirical parameters, which increases the difficulty of data pre-processing. Another one is the coexistence of multiple coefficient vectors, which causes the optimal solution to be drowned in multiple solutions. The third one is the composition of basic function, which is exclusively applicable to specific equations. In this article, a local sparse screening identification algorithm (LSSI) is proposed… More >

    Numerical Simulation of An Experienced Farmer Lifting Tubers of Cassava for Designing A Bionic Harvester

    Wang Yang1,2, Juanjuan Li1, Jian Yang1,3, Lin Wei4

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.104, No.6, pp. 471-491, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.104.471

    Abstract Harvesting is the most difficult and costly operation in cassava production. Currently, most cassava harvest still depends on manual tools. Effective mechanized harvesters are necessary to improve harvesting quality and reduce production cost. Therefore, it is very important to figure out key information for designing an effective tuber lifting system used in bionic “dig-pull” harvesters. A numerical simulation model of human-stem-tuber-soil system was developed to carry out numerical simulation of manually pulling tuber. Coupling algorithm of Lagrange and smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) was used in the model. Lifting mechanism of experienced farmer was studied at a micro level. Influence of… More >
