Voltage Generated Characteristics of Piezoelectric Ceramics Cymbal Transducer
ABSTRACT

In this study the relation between the generated open circuit output voltages of the piezoelectric ceramics Cymbal transducers with applied impact mechanical energy is studied. The output voltages of piezoelectric ceramics Cymbal transducers are increased with the increasing of the applied mechanical energy. Under the same impact mechanical energy, the generated open circuit output voltages of the piezoelectric ceramics Cymbal transducer is much higher than that of uncapped piezoelectric ceramics disk alone. The generated open circuit output voltages of the piezoelectric ceramics Cymbal transducer depend on the geometry parameters and the metal thickness of end-cap. The generated open circuit voltage of piezoelectric ceramics Cymbal transducer with thick metal thickness is small than that with thin metal thickness.
