Paper Abstract

Design and manufacture of DEAP based devices used for energy harvesting is a challenging multidiscipline task. Research has predominately focused on small scale proof of concept designs and human powered size devices. Methods for scaling from the proof of concept size into large scale DEAP devices are addressed. DEAP material properties for energy harvesting applications are established. Results of the mechanical and electrical characterization of large scale DEAP energy harvesting devices are presented. Manufacturing and quality controls concepts used by Danfoss PolyPower for large scale energy harvesting are presented.
