dc.description.abstractAdvances in mechatronics have renewed interest in the harvesting and storage of ambient vibration energy. This work documents recent efforts to model a novel electromagnetic transducer design that is intended for use in energy harvesting. The thesis details methods of experimental characterization as well as model validation. Also presented are methods of state space and parametric modelling eforts. In addition, this thesis presents equivalent electrical circuit models with a focus on switched pulse-width-modulated topologies that seek to maximize harvested energy.en
