Low level mechanical vibrations exist in many environments. The primary frequencies can spread about decades and the acceleration amplitudes of the ambient vibrations can be in the range from about 1 to 10 m/s2. Vibration energy harvesting is the promising electric power sources for micro-electric-mechanical system (MEMS). The piezoelectric cantilever model has been proved as a preference structure for vibration energy harvesting. An efficacious computational model of the vibration energy harvesting is established to predict the output of open-circuit voltages in this paper. Meanwhile, a prototype piezoelectric cantilever generator is set up. The calculated results were compared well with that of tests.
