This HUGE IMPROVEMENT OF EFFICIENCY can be quickly explained by considering:
1.- The smaller area of application of the force (100 N) of the piezoelectric element much greater will be the voltage:
- Sheet Area = 120 mm x 50 mm = 6.000 mm2
- Matrix of 34 Piezoelectric elements Area = 34 x p x (1,5 /2)^2 = 60 mm2
1st Voltage multiplier factor = 6.000 mm2 / 60 mm2 = 100
2.- The greater thickness of the piezoelectric element much greater will be the voltage:
- Sheet thickness = 0,15 mm
- 34 piezoelectric elements thickness = 15 mm
2nd Voltage multiplier factor = 15 mm / 0,15 mm = 100
TOTAL VOLTAGE FACTOR = 1st factor x 2nd Factor = 100 x 100 = 10.000 (This means that our system is 10.000 times more efficient than the existing system in terms of voltage generation with the same material.) … But this is not all…
3.- In addition to this Total Voltage Factor, connecting in series the elements it considers appropriate, adding its output voltage (Vout), but also being 34 identical and simultaneous signals, allows me to make connections in parallel to increase the output current (Iout), describing the Matrix that most interests us |
