The main objective of this project is to determine the potential electrical power that can be generated from raindrop impact on piezoelectric material. Previous studies show that the fossil fuel production is depleting and with the rapid growth of population, the remainder supply could not keep up with the energy demand. Therefore, new alternative energy is required to avoid full dependency on fossil fuel. This is a preliminary study focus on rainfall records of Perak, Malaysia to obtain the significant of this new source of energy. By referring to previous study and finite element method, the mathematical model in developed and simulate to define the vibratory movement, strain and potential energy exerted from raindrop impact on polyvinylidene fluoride. The finding shows that the energy output from100m² PVDF plate area was very low in the range of 0.49mJ .The detail of this project are discussed in this paper.
