TL;DR: In this article, the authors presented an analysis of piezomagnetoelastic energy harvesters under broadband random ambient excitations for the purpose of powering low-power electronic sensor systems.
Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of piezomagnetoelastic energy harvesters under broadband random ambient excitations for the purpose of powering low-power electronic sensor systems. Their nonlinear behavior as a result of vibration in a magnetic field makes piezomagnetoelastic energy harvesters different from classical piezoelastic energy harvesters. An equivalent linearization-based analytical approach is developed for the analysis of harvested power. A closed-form approximate expression for the ensemble average of the harvested power is derived and validated against numerical Monte Carlo simulation results. Our results show that it is possible to optimally design the system such that the mean harvested power is maximized for a given strength of the input broadband random ambient excitation.

TL;DR: In this paper, the effect of parametric uncertainty in the mechanical system on the harvested power was investigated, and approximate explicit formulae for the optimal electrical parameters that maximize the mean harvested power were derived.
Abstract: The design and analysis of energy harvesting devices is becoming increasing important in recent years. Most of the literature has focused on the deterministic analysis of these systems and the problem of uncertain parameters has received less attention. Energy harvesting devices exhibit parametric uncertainty due to errors in measurement, errors in modelling and variability in the parameters during manufacture. This paper investigates the effect of parametric uncertainty in the mechanical system on the harvested power, and derives approximate explicit formulae for the optimal electrical parameters that maximize the mean harvested power. The maximum of the mean harvested power decreases with increasing uncertainty, and the optimal frequency at which the maximum mean power occurs shifts. The effect of the parameter variance on the optimal electrical time constant and optimal coupling coefficient are reported. Monte Carlo based simulation results are used to further analyse the system under parametric uncertainty.
TL;DR: In this article, a hybrid energy harvester combining piezoelectric and electromagnetic transduction mechanisms is designed to harvest vibration energy, which can harvest energy at a broad range of frequencies.
Abstract: A hybrid energy harvester combining piezoelectric and electromagnetic transduction mechanisms is designed to harvest vibration energy. The system comprises of a cantilever beam PZT harvester and a magnetic mass hung through a spring at the free end. The beam with PZT harvests energy using piezoelectric effect while the hanging mass oscillates through a copper coil to harvest electromagnetic energy. This paper studies power harvested from the hybrid harvester under harmonic excitation using experimental and analytical evaluations. Comparisons are made with the standalone piezoelectric and electromagnetic harvesters under similar excitation environment. The study shows that the present hybrid harvester can harvest energy at a broad range of frequencies. Furthermore, a few parametric studies are carried out to understand the device output performance. The bandwidth of the harvester and the power harvested within the bandwidth can be designed based on the stiffness of the system and also by changing the electromechanical coupling coefficient. Studies reported also show that bandwidth of harvester can also be increased by increasing the magnetic mass.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors highlight the role of nonlinearities in the transduction of energy harvesters under different types of excitations and investigate the conditions, in terms of excitation nature and potential shape, under which such non-linearities can be beneficial for energy harvesting.
Abstract: The last two decades have witnessed several advances in microfabrication technologies and electronics, leading to the development of small, low-power devices for wireless sensing, data transmission, actuation, and medical implants. Unfortunately, the actual implementation of such devices in their respective environment has been hindered by the lack of scalable energy sources that are necessary to power and maintain them. Batteries, which remain the most commonly used power sources, have not kept pace with the demands of these devices, especially in terms of energy density. In light of this challenge, the concept of vibratory energy harvesting has flourished in recent years as a possible alternative to provide a continuous power supply. While linear vibratory energy harvesters have received the majority of the literature’s attention, a significant body of the current research activity is focused on the concept of purposeful inclusion of nonlinearities for broadband transduction. When compared to their linear resonant counterparts, nonlinear energy harvesters have a wider steady-state frequency bandwidth, leading to a common belief that they can be utilized to improve performance in ambient environments. Through a review of the open literature, this paper highlights the role of nonlinearities in the transduction of energy harvesters under different types of excitations and investigates the conditions, in terms of excitation nature and potential shape, under which such nonlinearities can be beneficial for energy harvesting.

TL;DR: The fifth edition of "Numerical Methods for Engineers" continues its tradition of excellence and expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in the problems, which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering.
Abstract: The fifth edition of "Numerical Methods for Engineers" continues its tradition of excellence. Instructors love this text because it is a comprehensive text that is easy to teach from. Students love it because it is written for them--with great pedagogy and clear explanations and examples throughout. The text features a broad array of applications, including all engineering disciplines. The revision retains the successful pedagogy of the prior editions. Chapra and Canale's unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called Motivation, Mathematical Background, and Orientation, preparing the student for what is to come in a motivating and engaging manner. Each part closes with an Epilogue containing sections called Trade-Offs, Important Relationships and Formulas, and Advanced Methods and Additional References. Much more than a summary, the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods. Approximately 80% of the end-of-chapter problems are revised or new to this edition. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in the problems, which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Users will find use of software packages, specifically MATLAB and Excel with VBA. This includes material on developing MATLAB m-files and VBA macros.
