Network of Triboelectric Nanogenerator

Network of Triboelectric Nanogenerator


Project Description

Triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) is done to harvest electrostatic and mechanical energies from water wave. A network made of triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) for large-scale harvesting kinetic water energy. Relying on surface charging effect between the conventional polymers and very thin layer of metal as electrodes, the TENG network (TENG-NW) convert the slow oscillatory wave energy into electricity. Advantages are: being lightweight,cost-effective with expected power 1.15 MW.
