E. Sardini, V. Luciano, M. Serpelloni, G. Baronio

Abstract

In this paper various architectures of electromagnetic harvesting devices, realized in the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Brescia, is reported, estimating their usability for biomedical applications. Furthermore, this paper shows a first attempt of a new electromagnetic generator architecture. The proposed system is modelled and simulated showing promising results.
