Background/Objectives: The generation of electrical power and its utilisation is an essential practice. Currently, the energy sources are non-renewable and expensive; the demand for electric power is increasing rapidly. In this purposed work, energy is generated by pedestrian power or using locomotive pressure energy. Methods/Statistical analysis: We use a tile containing several piezoelectric transducers arranged in a series-parallel configuration so as stress or pressure applied by pedestrians can be converted in useful Electrical source. DC, AC filters and buck converters are used for smoothing purpose and to obtain required voltage level. Findings: We generated approximately 20 volts by applying the pressure of the human body on the multiple piezo tiles using anti-diodes, and the highest voltage was recorded of 45 volts without using anti-diodes. Novelty/Applications: The production and life of piezoelectric transducers has been enhanced and more wattage power is generated than existing designs. The power generated can be used directly; also, we used batteries to store power. This piezo system can be fixed in homes, schools, universities and anywhere where human movements occurr.
