hello
can anyone suggest values components for the following circuit which is a Piezo-electric Energy Harvesting Circuit.
The following values are known to us, it will be very helpful if someone can suggest to us the other values.
L=10.03mH, Ip=2.2 mA rms, Cp=0.184uF,

You must first characterize the source of energy. The collector (PZT sensor) can be super efficient, but with no source of energy in that said frequency band the end result will be zero

I think, specifying Ip=2.2 mA rms effectively assumes a source of energy. Of course, it's a simplified model and we can't know, if the assumed power level is realistic. A weakness of the model is to assume a purely reactive source impedance, which will surely disprove if you try to include it in a resonant circuit.

Make sure that piezo voltage generated is high enough so that it can trigger the diode on, otherwise the bridge will not work. (more that 0.2v)
