MAGNETOELASTIC ELECTROMECHANICAL SYSTEMS FOR POWER HARVESTING FROM VIBRATION
Paper i proceeding, 2008
The paper addresses the problem of vibration-to-electric energy conversion using magnetostrictive materials. Theoretical and experimental results of the study of the magnetostrictive electric transducers (MET) for power harvesting from vibration are presented. Both simulations and experimental data have confirmed functionality of the designed MET using giant magnetostrictive material TERFENOL-D.
