Framework for Efficient Dynamic Analysis Applied to a Tubular Generator for Suspension Applications

Scriptie/Masterproef: Master


In this paper, a slotless three-phase tubular permanent
magnet generator applied to vibration energy harvesting in
automotive suspensions is considered. A two-dimensional finite
element method model of the harvester is created as well as an
experimental setup, containing the generator. Signal decomposition
is applied to measured suspension displacement data and the
resulting signal components are applied to the model. Two signal
decomposition methods are considered, namely, the discrete
Fourier transform and the continuous wavelet transform. The
individual responses of the model are superposed, from which
the corresponding harvested energy is derived. Comparisons are
made with measurements on the setup that act as reference
to determine the accuracy of each of the signal decomposition
