ABSTRACT
Energy harvesting from human body kinetics is a crucial issue. The primary challenge lies in designing and optimizing the energy converter. This paper presents an analysis of energy harvesting using three variants of electromagnetic harvesters designed for backpack integration. The first harvester comprises a single levitating magnet within a coil. The second concept involves a specially designed oscillating magnet consisting of two divided magnets with a separator. The third harvester variant utilizes two levitating magnets within the coil. The results indicate that, for harmonic excitation, the harvested power is the highest for the classical harvester with a single oscillating magnet. However, when integrated into a backpack, the concept of two levitating magnets proves to be more effective in lower speed ranges.
