Tang et al. Fig. 14 Estimation of net power by proposed technique ([27], copyright: SAGE Publications) Fig. 15 (a) Schematic of the device and (b) time response of the harvester’s operating frequency after the control voltage was disconnected ([29], copyright: IOP Publishing) range. However, once the control voltage was disconnected, the frequency drifted away from the initial adjusted value due to leakage of the piezoceramic, as shown in Fig. 15b. This drift was more intense for high control voltages (>130 V).

4 Nonlinear Energy Harvesting Configurations In Sect. 2 we presented several resonance tuning techniques using magnets [20–22]. Actually these magnets introduce not only a change in the linear stiffness but also a change in the nonlinear stiffness. The nonlinear behavior becomes apparent when the harvester experiences oscillation with significant amplitude. Such nonlinearity also benefits wideband energy harvesting. , nonlinear stiffness [49–57] and nonlinear piezoelectric coupling [58, 59]. Compared to the nonlinear piezoelectric coupling, which results from the manufacturing process of piezoelectric materials, the nonlinear stiffness of a harvester is relatively easier to achieve and control.

Peters et al. [26] proposed another novel tunable resonator whose mechanical stiffness and hence the resonance could be adjusted through two piezoelectric actuators. The free actuator swung around the axis of rotation with a deflection angle ˛, as shown in Fig. 11a. By applying a voltage on the actuators, both ends of the actuators were deflected by y(Vop ), as shown in Fig. 11b. Such deformation caused an additional hinge moment and thus a stiffer structure. One of their fabricated resonators achieved a large tuning of over 30% from an initial frequency of 78 Hz, using a tuning voltage of only ˙5 V, as shown in Fig.
