Majority of the reported kinetic energy harvesting mechanisms involve translatory transduction mechanisms, which diverges from the long established rotary design for electromagnetic generators. A rotary design can offer a much smaller magnet-coil air gap and clearance guidance that translatory transducers simply cannot physically attain. Therefore, this research investigates the feasibility of implementing a V-shaped magnet rotor for the purpose of coupling base point excitation into rotation, which can eventually be coupled to a generator motor. It was also previously theorised that the nonlinear magnetic coupling can give rise to broadband nonlinear resonant behaviour. The resultant device aims to enhance the overall power conversion efficiency of the captured vibration energy.
