Тhis paperproposes a specialized model of an energy harvesting system powered by a piezoelectric polymer element. The model allows a complex system based evaluation and can be used as a general design tool. The model is implemented into a general purpose simulation environment. The simulation results are presented and analysed. The model is verified trough a dedicated experiment.


Keywords – Energy Harvesting, Piezoelectric, PVDF, Simulation model, Wireless sensors.
