Asynchronous electrostatic generators have the advantage of omitting the control circuit used for synchronizing mechanical movements with electrical switching events, which results in simplified implementation. In this paper, an improved optimization procedure is proposed for this type of electrostatic generator and its performance in responding to different variations during the operation of the harvester is investigated. Power efficiency and simplicity are the main advantages of the proposed procedure, which is verified by simulation.
