dc.description.abstractEnergy harvesters are one of the focus areas in the field of research. The complex smart devices and miniaturized electronic design limit the use of traditional wired power source. The need for an efficient human energy harvester for such devices is growing exponentially every year due to an increase in the demand of energy sources and power requirement for the electronics. In the recent years, the trend of research is leading us to come up with a better solution of replacing the use of non-renewable energy with the renewable sources. Human energy harvesting technique has evolved as an efficient substitute to these. But there are few challenges in designing such energy harvesters. Firstly, obtaining higher efficiency. Moreover, since the efficiency is lower it is difficult to obtain enough energy considered to size. The goal is to model and simulate small scale energy harvester which harvests the ambient energy efficiently. There are several advantages of human energy harvester which make it beneficial, cost-effective and has grabbed the attention of researchers since past several years. In this thesis report, a human energy harvester has been designed in a 2-loop spiral design and simulated to obtain an efficient design using piezoelectric materials.eng
