Annotation: Úlohou dizertanta je vytvoriť zariadenie, ktoré kombináciou algoritmických a hardvérových riešení umožňuje adaptívny zber elektrickej energie z okolitých vibrácií pomocou piezokeramických prevodníkov. Podobné zariadenia sú využité napríklad v diaľkovej diagnostike mechanických štruktúr, kde vyhodnocovacie zariadenie získa svoju energiu z vibrácií. Množstvo nazbieranej energie priamo súvisí s fyzikálnou a elektronickou konfiguráciou takéhoto zariadenia ale samozrejme aj od charakteru vonkajších vibrácií. Zariadenie má vyhodnotiť parametre zberu v reálnom času, a prispôsobiť svoju konfiguráciu (mechanicky, elektricky) na maximalizáciu energie aj pri poruchových situáciach.
Annotation in English: The role of the doctoral student is to create a concept laboratory system, that adaptively harvests electrical energy from ambient vibrations. The adaptivity relies on the reconfiguration of the hardware and software of the system. These kinds of energy harvesters may be used in structural diagnostic systems mounted at inaccessible or remote locations, where the microprocessor is powered through this alternative source of energy. The amount of energy produced depends on the physical electrical configuration of the device and of course on the character of the outside mechanical noise and vibration. The device will estimate the process parameters in real-time then adapt its configuration (mechanically, electrically) in order to maximize the harvested energy, even when the system is subject to outside errors.
