Design and Optimization of a Tubular Linear Electromagnetic Vibration Energy Harvester

  title={Design and Optimization of a Tubular Linear Electromagnetic Vibration Energy Harvester},
  author={Xiudong Tang and Teng Lin and Lei Zuo},
  journal={IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics},
This paper presents the design and optimization of tubular linear electromagnetic transducers (LETs) for the applications of large-scale vibration energy harvesting from vehicle suspensions, tall buildings, or long-span bridges. The LETs are composed of magnet and coil assemblies, which convert the vibration energy into electricity when moving relatively with each other. The parameters of the LETs, such as the thickness of the magnets in the axial direction and the thickness of the coils in the… CONTINUE READING
