First it can't produce more then the impact energy.Next, I collected a signal from a paint-ball vest made of more then a squarefoot of piezo material. No power to notice.
You can strain the material and generate a sizable voltage, without impacts though A. Steve
Right you are, my device in use in a vid. Here is a levered pair of ¾ inch long by ¼ inch diameter crystals that can produce a 1½ inch spark under ideal conditions. It was made by Clevite Corp. . . . . . A
This is the smallest bidirectional HV generator I know.It is a good bit of fun putting micro-pin holes into business cards.You can feel the hand pressure release as the spark jumps.I heard some group was making a tubular auto car lift jack at on time.Anyway it is a very good gaming and other noise immunity tester.
High volts low amps - therefore low power
What are you deforming it with? L
Depends on the crystal, depends on how much force you apply how often.I suspect the answer, for whatever you're planning on doing, is "microwatts."
