Analytic Study on the Relationship between the Transferred Charge and Tribo-Charge in a Rotary Freestanding TENG (RF-TENG)

Authors(1) :-SeongMin Kim

In this study, an analytical equation for a metal-to-dielectric rotary freestanding triboelectric nanogenerator with a grating structure is derived and discussed. The equation-based analysis is performed to understand the relationship between the transferred charge and the triboelectric charge in this system. As a result, it is found that the transferred charge is directly proportional to the triboelectric charge, which indicates that the triboelectric charge is the main factor that influences the transferred charge.
