## Piezoelectric example problem

Hey I am looking for an example problems that have piezoelectrics generating electricity.

I would like to have and use a simple problem in which a piezoelectric is squeezed to generate electricity. Does anyone know where I can find such problems and solutions?

 I was thinking something a long the lines of; You have a 1000 N force striking a block of PZT that has a 20 cm by 20 cm area and that has a thickness of 3 cm. How much voltage and power is created. What you know: Youngs mod, piezoelectric coef, relative permitvity, etc. Step 1) Calculate change in thickness using Delta t = (Force * thickness)/(youngs mod *area) Step 2) with delta t you can figure out strain using Strain = delta t/t step 3) With Strain figure out stress, recall we know youngs mod; Stress = younds mod/ strain Step 4) D= d*T; piezoelectric coefficent * stress = Columbs/m^2 Step 5) Get charge q: columbs/ m^2 * area (m^2) = charge columbs Step 6) Capactience; (Relative permit * permit of space)*( Area/ thickness) now finally Step 7) Voltage: V= Q/C so you take the charge calculate in step 5 and divide it by the materials capacitence calculate in step 6. Let me know what you guys think or if this is the correct approach. Also how would I calculate the internal resistance of the material so that I can take the voltage use that resistance to caculate current and power. Any insight or corrections would be great
