Paper Abstract

The authors recently reported on a hybrid rotary-translational vibration energy harvesting approach using a spherical permanent-magnet and employing cycloidal motion as a mechanical amplifier. The rotary-translational harvesting approach, which is resonant in nature, can yield approximately twice the e.m.f. compared with a similar translationalonly device. This paper explores the analytic and numerical modelling of the rotary-translational harvester with the goal of finding an efficient method for design optimisation.
