Analysis of spherical, rolling magnet generator for passive energy harvesting
In this thesis, a spherical, rolling magnet generator for passive energy harvesting is investigated. It was designed for gathering energy from human motion. This thesis focuses on the analysis of the dynamics of this device and gives its governing equations. Then under two expected applications, this thesis finds the parameters that greatly influence its efficiency and provide optimal parameter combinations.
