The purpose of this research project is to collect electrical energy from vibrating beams using piezoelectricity; essentially to create and store energy in a manner that will be environmentally friendly. The process begins with the constructed circuit with resistor, capacitor, rectifiers and an LED light bulb. The LED light bulb will be used to demonstrate the success of storing the electrical energy in the capacitor. The source of energy will be the constructed vibrating beam and the Piezoelectric (PZT) patch that will create electrical energy at the slightest bending motion of the patch. The benefits of the results of this experiment are not restricted to certain people but they are favorable to the entire global population by supplying environmentally friendly electrical energy. This will provide a form of renewable clean energy that can be beneficial to electrically powered organizations and the environment as well.
