Piezoelectric energy harvesting systems

  1. Jul 22, 2017 #1
    I am an student of Engineering and I come a cross of a doubt that I would like to investigate a bit more.
    I would like some information or some directions to the right path for the following.

    I would like to know how could I calculate the harvesting energy of an area for a piezoelectric system and the materials most common used with a higher rate of efficiency. Also any conversions rates or factor to take in consideration.

    If there is any fundamentals papers that I must read and somebody could reference here will be very appreciate to know where to start reading about the materials and principles.

    Really appreciate any help given!!
