The Electrodynamic Human Motion Energy Converter with Planar Structure
The performance of the electrodynamic human motion energy converter with planar structure is under investigation. The electrodynamic converter consists of a flat, spiral-shaped coil and a rectangular magnet that during human motion moves in respect to one another. During the motion of the rectangular magnet with a remanence 0.1 T over a flat, formed up as an Archimedes spiral coil with 25 turns, an average power of about 10 W is generated. The generator elements can both be deployed on a variety of clothing items which move relative to one another during the human motion, and also realizing the forced oscillation of the magnet during walking.
