Modelling and analysis of a single gimbal gyroscopic energy harvester

Modelling and analysis of a single gimbal gyroscopic energy harvester
Modelling and analysis of a single gimbal gyroscopic energy harvester
This work investigates the non-linear dynamics
of a single gimbal gyroscopic energy harvester,
excited by a harmonic moment about 1 and 2 axes simultaneously. The governing equations of motion are
derived and a numerical model is developed to analyse
the forced system response in all three rotational
degrees of freedom. Simulations showing the effect
of the harmonic forcing frequency and the gyroscopic
damping are presented. The results identify the characteristic motion responses and available power of a
single gimbal gyroscopic energy harvester including
the development of the non-linear responses.

Abstract

This work investigates the non-linear dynamics
of a single gimbal gyroscopic energy harvester,
excited by a harmonic moment about 1 and 2 axes simultaneously. The governing equations of motion are
derived and a numerical model is developed to analyse
the forced system response in all three rotational
degrees of freedom. Simulations showing the effect
of the harmonic forcing frequency and the gyroscopic
damping are presented. The results identify the characteristic motion responses and available power of a
single gimbal gyroscopic energy harvester including
the development of the non-linear responses.
