We address the fundamental issues of this conditioning circuit and give design advice that enhances the performance of e-VEHs employing this circuit. This circuit is widely used for harvesters with or without an electret layer. Despite its wide use, its fundamental problems have been weakly addressed even for simple configurations of e-VEHs since it is impossible to solve the corresponding equations in closed form. As a consequence, appropriate semi-analytical methods that provide an insight into the physics of the system are required.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IOP Publishing||Keywords:||Electrostatic vibration energy harvester; Accelerators, beams and electromagnetism; Instrumentation and measurement||DOI:||10.1088/1742-6596/476/1/012076||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Journal of Physics: Conference Series, Volume 476 conference 1||Conference Details:||PowerMEMS, The 13th International Conference on Micro and Nanotechnology for Power Generation and Energy Conversion Applications, 3-6 December, London, UK|
