In this study, a harvesting device which consists of a piezoelectric cantilever beam with a proof mass is developed for a wireless tire pressure monitoring sysytem (TPMS). First of all, the finite element software COMSOL was utilized to calculate the resonance frequencies and output powers of piezoelectric cantilever beams with various geometries and structures. Results show that the resonance frequency could be reduced by increasing the length of piezoelectric beam and the weight of mass, and the increases of width and thickness would raise the electric power. Besides, a d31 unimorph structure has a camparable output power as well as simple configuration. According to the simulation results, a piezoelectric harvesting device for TPMS was designed and fabricated based on the d31 unimorph structure. The harvesting device exhibits a output power of about 100?W when the external resistance is 175kΩ, enough to drive a wireless tire pressure monitoring system.
