Abstract

The results of theoretical and experimental study of single-capacitor microelectromechanical mechanical-to-electrical energy converter with a series circuit are presented. The analysis of the converter operation is carried out, and analytical expressions for evaluation of the converter parameters are derived. The dependences of the load voltage against time and frequency of the capacitance modulation are calculated and also measured. It was established that the dependence of the output power versus modulation frequency and load resistance has a maximum. Keywords: ambient energy harvesting, variable capacitor, micropower generator, microelectromechanical converter, capacitance modulation, mechanical-to-electrical conversion, electrostatic energy converter
