Harvesting Vibrational Energy with the Volture™

 

 

Giga-concept's Volture™ Piezoelectric Energy Harvester uses the piezoelectric transducer effect to convert normally wasted mechanical energy, in the form of vibrations, into useable electrical energy. The Volture's protective skin also provides electrical insulation and defense against humidity and harsh contaminants. It makes piezoelectrics easier to use and easier to integrate into your products.

Any application where sensing is needed and there is a consistent vibration to harvest from can benefit from the Volture™.

Energy Harvesting Applications

Helicopters
A vibration rich environment and a great need for sensing make helicopters one of the great applications for vibration based energy harvesting. Helicopters are complex systems which require extensive sensing to remain working at peak efficiency. Providing power to these sensors is not only costly and complex, it also adds a significant amount of weight to the vehicle which the helicopter operators can not afford. Midé’s robust energy harvesting devices are a cost effective means to enable wireless power and sensing for helicopter applications.

 

Oil and Gas
From down hole drilling to refining plant operations, vibration energy harvesting is a low cost and highly effective means to improve the efficiency of and protect high value operations and assets. The cost and complexity associated with replacing batteries in a wireless sensor network assisting an oil and gas operation operate efficiently is not worth the investment. However, if the sensor nodes can harvest vibration energy from the environment and use that energy to power the wireless node, the true value in the sensor network can be fully realized. Midé’s robust energy harvesting systems are perfectly suited for these harsh oil and gas applications

 

Building and Plant Automation
Every business and individual is striving to improve their efficiency and reduce their footprint. This is achieved by operating assets more effectively and efficiently. The best means to do this is to have detailed knowledge of all parameters affecting your system and respond based on the most detailed information. For many applications and systems such as building and plant automation this means outfitting equipment with many different types of sensors. These sensors need power. Hardwired power can be costly to install. Battery power is costly to maintain. A device that can harvest energy from the environment to power the sensor system enables large scale wireless sensor networks that can drastically improve the efficiency of operations.
