Theoretical predictions include stable solutions (solid line) and unstable solutions (dashed line) ([50], copyright: Elsevier) Fig. 30 Schematic of proposed nonlinear energy harvester ([51], copyright: American Institute of Physics) is realized [51]. A linearly decreasing or increasing frequency sweep can capture the high-energy attractor and hence improve the bandwidth for the softening and hardening cases. Unfortunately, such conditions cannot be guaranteed in practice. Certain means of mechanical or electrical disturbance or perturbation is required once the nonlinear devices enter low-energy orbits; otherwise little power can be harvested.

27b) and the velocity of the beam at the impact point. These factors are controlled by the stopper height h0 and the offset distance l0 of the stopper from the cantilever support. Thus, in an environment with a known vibration probability density function (PDF), l0 and h0 should be tuned to tailor the upsweep bandwidth to better fit the given PDF, while h0 should be set as high as possible to minimize contact damping and maximize energy collection. Blystad et al. [64] presented circuit simulations to further investigate the effects of different two-sided stopper models and various interface circuits on the piezoelectric energy harvesting performance.

This might be due to the change of damping due to the magnets used in the experiment [20, 22], while a constant damping was used in the analysis by Ramlan et al. [49]. Previous monostable designs have a larger bandwidth due to the shift in the resonant frequency. This nonlinear advantage if the high-energy attractor regime 46 L. Tang et al. Fig. 4 m/s2 .
