The "Energy
Harvesting: Materials, Physics, and System Design with Practical
Examples"
book has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's
offering.

This report investigates the materials science and physics of energy
harvesting, with a focus on system configuration and efficient
performance.

It presents the mathematical theory of materials, electrical
conductivity, and device design for vibration-based harvesters,
thermoelectrics, photovoltaics, wind-energy turbines, and hybrids
thereof.

Examples include piezoelectrics in wind turbines, as well as approaches
using shape-memory alloys, thermomagnetics, and electrostatic
generation. Information is provided on testing, characterization, and
modeling of EH systems, with extensive equations analyzing materials and
energy flow. Circuitry, batteries, and capacitors are also covered.

Key Topics:

  • Investigates the materials science and physics of energy harvesting
    with a focus on system configuration and efficient performance
  • Presents mathematical theory and models of materials, electrical
    conductivity, and device design for vibration-based harvesters
  • Highly relevant for courses in energy harvesting, sustainable and
    renewable energy, thermal energy, wind energy, solar energy, magnetic
    energy, and vibrations.
  • Extensive equations provided to illustrate and analyze materials and
    energy flow
  • ANSYS codes included to assist with FEM analysis of magnetic flux
    devices
