—This paper reports on a new approach for the analysis and design of vibration-to-electricity converters [vibration energy harvesters (VEHs)] operating in the mode of strong electro-mechanical coupling. The underlying concept is that the mechanical impedance is defined for a nonlinear electromechanical transducer on the basis of an equivalence between(More)

— In this paper, we present an analysis of an electro-static vibration harvester operating in the constant-charge mode. The goal of the study is to bound regions of control parameters where the system displays steady-state harmonic oscillations as required for practical use. We show how the system can be presented as a nonlinear oscillator and analysed(More)
This paper presents a functional design and modeling of smart conditioning circuit of a vibrational energy harvester based on electrostatic transducer. Two original features are added to the basic configuration previously published (whose model we presented on BMAS2007 conference). Firstly, we developed an auto-calibration block which allows the new(More)
