An effective energy harvesting method from a natural water motion active transducer

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrated a new water motion active transducer (WMAT) without any external bias-voltage sources or additional processes, which critically limit the use of conventional passive capacitive transducers that convert mechanical motion into electric energy. From a simple structure, we successfully turned on an LED using various kinds of natural water motion. The WMAT, which has wide applicability, has good potential to be a candidate for generating sustainable electric energy.
