dc.description.abstract This thesis documents the design process for magnetic induction systems to harvest energy from mechanical vibrations. Two styles of magnetic induction systems - magnet-through-coil and magnet-across-coils - were analyzed. MATLAB models were created to serve as a design aid and optimization tool for both styles of magnetic induction systems. Prototypes were built to test the predictions of the MATLAB models. The experimental data was found to be in good agreement with the model predictions. en_US
