Although motion energy harvesting at the small scales has been a research topic for over 20 years, the implementation of such generators remains limited in practice. One of the most important contributing factors here is the poor performance of these devices under low-frequency excitation. In this research, a classification of miniaturised generators is proposed based on the dynamics of the nonlinear systems. This provides insight in the performance of different types of designs, which can be used to develop new designs with better efficiencies under realistic conditions.
