Fossil fuels, besides the environmental problems they cause, are condemned to depletion. Each time is harder and costlier to extract those dirty fuels from the ground. We need to find other means for our energy requirements. We have been burning fossil fuels for two hundred years. For nature, the accumulation of energy in the covalent bonds of its chemical structure took thousands of million years.
Energy Harvesting is an alternative to change the trend.
The proposal is a system that replaces the coil and magnet for a piezoelectric transducing system. The energy generated will be used to charge small appliances and communication devices.
The wind creates alternatively a high and low pressure in opposites sides of the membrane.
Energy is harvested using a piezo-electic couple. Alternate electricity is generated, what allow us to send it with relative low lost.
The tension of the system could be also controlled, maximizing the energy harvesting. This will be done using gears for mechanical advantage.
Microphones are going to be used for measure both the wind speed and direction. Two microphones will be used for direction, calculating the difference between the two values.
