Traditional vibration-based energy harvesters are designed for a specific base excitation frequency by matching its fundamental natural frequency. This work presents the modeling and analysis of a nonlinear, magnetically excited energy harvester that exhibits efficient broadband, frequency-independent performance utilizing a passive auxiliary structure that remains stationary relative to the base motion. This system is especially effective in the regime of driving frequencies well below its… CONTINUE READING
