The three mechanisms considered in this paper are namely the in-plane overlap, in-plane gap closing and out-of-plane gap closing converters. In this analytical modeling, the mass of the movable loads as well as the cross-sectional areas of the devices' active regions were set to be the same for all the mechanisms, while we assumed these electrostatic mechanisms are operated in ideal vacuum environment. A maximum output energy density of 0.547 μJ mm-3 has been obtained for the case in which the movable load has a volume of 5 mm3. © 2009.||Source Title:||Sensors and Actuators, A: Physical||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/83182||ISSN:||09244247||DOI:||10.1016/j.sna.2009.02.024|
