Control of Vibratory Energy Harvesters in the Presence of Nonlinearities and Power-Flow Constraints (2012)Over the past decade, a significant amount of research activity has been devoted to developing electromechanical systems that can convert ambient mechanical vibrations into usable electric power. Such systems, referred ...
Modeling and Control of an Electromagentic Transducer for Vibratory Energy Harvesting Applications (2011)The primary focus of this thesis is on the modeling and control of an electromechanical transducer to harvest energy from large structures (e.g. buildings and bridges). The transducer consists of a back-driven ballscrew ...
