Keywords: vibration energy harvesting, scaling, biaxial, electromagnetic, structural health monitoring
This work describes a vibration energy harvesting approach that uses a magnetoelectric transducer to harvest energy from bi-axial vibrations. The approach is being explored as a potential means of powering in situ structural health monitoring systems embedded within aircraft.
