Summary This paper focuses on a novel piezoelectric energy harvester for nanofiber PVDF to capture energy from vibration environment. A Resembling CMOS(R-CMOS) circuit consisting of two pMOS transistors and two nMOS transistors is presented, which can greatly increase the energy efficiency and reduce the power dissipation tremendously. Meanwhile, the novel harvester supplies smooth direct current. Simulation result of MULTISIM has shown that by using this novel piezoelectric energy harvester the input voltage (5v) can be rectified to be an output voltage (4.24v). The voltage conversion rate of the novel harvester is as high as 84.8% which is much larger than the rate of traditional rectifier circuit. Its potential application is in micro sensors, wireless transducers, and sensor networks.
