In this article we present a model of a bimorph piezoelectric cantilever beam used for energy harvesting in micromechanical devices. The model is created in Simulink. Its parameters can be changed to find the best possible configuration of the beam. The outputs of the model are mechanical and electrical properties and the model can be tuned to the desired output variable. The model is divided into two parts. There is the vibration part and the mechanical part. This two parts communicate all together to allow proper functioning of the model.
