Owing to the anisotropic property and small output signals of the piezoelectric nanogenerators (NGs) and the influence of the measurement system and environment, identification of the true signal generated by the NG is critical. We have developed three criteria: Schottky behavior test, switching-polarity tests, and linear superposition of current and voltage tests. The 11 tests can effectively rule out the system artifacts, whose sign does not change with the switching measurement polarity, and random signals, which might change signs but cannot consistently add up or cancel out under designed connection configurations. This study establishes the standards for designing and scale up of integrated nanogenerators.

    In the text books, while solving the circuits with controlled sources using Principle of Superposition (POS), controlled sources are not deactivated. Thus POS has not been applied in the 'true sense' to circuits with dependent sources. It is shown here that POS can be applied in the 'true sense'...
