Paper Abstract

A review of the vibration energy harvesting literature has been undertaken with the goal of establishing scaling laws for experimentally demonstrated harvesting devices. In particular electromagnetic harvesting devices are investigated. Power density metrics are examined with respect to scaling length, mass, frequency and drive acceleration. Improvements in demonstrated power density of harvesting devices over the past decade are noted. Scaling laws are observed that appear to suggest an upper limit to the power density achievable with current harvesting techniques.
