Abstract. This paper presents a semi-active broadband vibrational-energy harvesting system. Based on a non-resonant rotational generator, electronic circuitry was used to overcome the physical start-up restrictions. Due to the functional design it remains an energy harvester suitable for battery-less devices. For the first time a vibrational energy harvester is presented that allows standardization and thus higher volume production. A system layout, simulation, and measurement data will be shown.
