Paper Abstract

In order to solve the energy supply problem for ubiquitous equipments, a gyroscopic power generator is proposed which utilizes kinetic energy of human movement. In the generator, a rotor increases spinning velocity by the precession and friction caused by input vibration. In this paper, first, an analytical method of the rotor movement is presented. Then the output energy of the prototype generator is estimated by using the analysis.
