How much electricity is produced by piezoelectric generators?





Question: How much electricity is produced by piezoelectric generators?

Answer: Many factors affect the amount of electricity that can be produced by piezoelectric generators. There are many types of piezoelectric materials but man made piezoelectric ceramics are most commonly used. One of the most common, PZT, can convert 80% of the mechanical energy applied into electricity. Also different sized materials will produce different amounts of electricity. So, for a given piezoelectric generator you must consider material, size, and the amount of mechanical energy applied.
