Wireless node sensor network are fast becoming a popular option m commercial technology advancements, particularly in the equipment or process monitoring. To power these appliances, batteries are usually used to run the devices. Currently, researchers are looking into the possibility of converting the enviromnent vibration energy (from vibration sources e.g. industrial machines, transportation vehicles) into a low power electric energy, sufficient enough to activate and run the sensors. In this project, the mechanism for piezoelectricity power generation was studied, with the view of integrating into a MEMS-based power generating chip. The design and mathematical formulation are put together before simulating the device using the CoventorWare software. At the end of the project, an optimized design should be achieved, in addition to device simulations to verifY its performance. This will enable engineers in creating the ideal MEMS-based piezoelectric device in the future.
