In this paper the effect of heat on the performance of novel energy harvester (NEH) by using PZT-5H circular transducers was mentioned. PZT-5H circular transducers were heated at three different temperatures such as 20 0 C, 60 0 C and 100 0 C and tested on 20g exciter under sinusoidal support excitation by using NEH. The observations were made on three parameters: temperature effect on impedance, temperature effect on resonant frequencies and temperature effect on the output voltage. At 20 0 C,
