With the continuously broadening application area of Internet of Things (IoT), robust energy harvesters and power conditioning units for supplying remote sensors and actuators are gaining importance. A single-sided linear induction machine (SLIM) with solid secondary operating in generator mode could meet these requirements as it can harvest electric energy from the kinetic energy of a moving conductive body (secondary). Therefore, the energy harvesting performance of SLIMs is studied in this… Expand
