Paper Abstract

Piezoelectric acoustic-electric power feedthru devices that are able to transfer electric power through metallic/ferromagnetic wall are investigated. Electric energy is converted to acoustic energy by piezoelectric transducer at one side of the wall. The acoustic wave propagates through the wall and, then, it is converted back to electric energy by another transducer on the other side. For high efficient transmission, it is critical that all the energy loss should be minimized. In addition to the electrical, mechanical and electromechanical loss in the transducers and the thickness of the wall, Lamb (plate) waves are excited by the transducers in the wall and they also result in energy losses. In this study, the energy loss caused by the Lamb waves are analyzed analytically and by finite element simulations. The results and the methods to reduce the loss are presented and discussed in this presentation.
