- ... This paper presents the results of energy harvesting experiments with piezoelectric film transducers placed in swirling air flow. The turbulent flow was created by a centrifugal fan –swirler plate arrangement. The air flow field created had a Reynolds number of 15,000–130,000 and a swirl number of 0.3–0.4. The mounting mode of the piezoelectric film transducer allows for varying the position and o ...
