Supplying wireless sensors from ambient energy is nowadays highly demanded for a higher flexibility of use and low system maintenance costs. Vibration sources are thereby especially attractive due to their availability and the relatively high energy density they can provide. The aim of this work is to realize a hybrid energy converter for vibration sources having low amplitude and low frequency. The idea is to combine two diverse harvesters to realize a higher energy density and at the same time to improve the converter reliability. We focus on the design, modeling, and test of the hybrid vibration converter. For an appropriate converter design, the vibration profiles of several ambient vibration sources are characterized. The results show that the typical frequency and acceleration ranges are between 5 Hz to 60 Hz and 0.1 g to 1.5 g respectively. The proposed converter is based on the magnetoelectric (ME) and electromagnetic (EM) principles. These two principles can be easily combined within almost the same volume, because they generate energy form the same varying magnetic field coupled to the mechanical vibration of the source. Thereby, the energy density is improved as the ME converter is incorporated within the relatively large coil housing of the electromagnetic converter. The proposed converter is based on the use of a magnetic spring instead of the typically used mechanical springs, which applies the repulsive force to the seismic mass of the converter. The applied vibration is transmitted to the converter based on the magnetic spring principle instead of the conventional mechanical springs. Due to the nonlinearity of the magnetic spring, the converter is able to operate for a frequency bandwidth instead of resonant frequency which is the case while using a mechanical spring. Hence, this leads to realize a high converter efficiency even under random vibrations characterized by frequency bandwidth. As well, using magnetic spring principle enables to adjust the resonant frequency of the converter relative to the applied vibration source easily by just adjusting the moving magnet size. For the converter design, a parametric study is conducted using finite element analysis. Two main criteria are thereby taken into account, which are the compactness and the efficiency of the converter. Parameters affecting these two criteria are classified in mechanical, electromagnetic and magnetoelectric parameters. Results show that the combination of the EM and ME principles leads to an improvement of the energy output compared to a single EM or ME converter. The novel hybrid converter is realized and tested under harmonic and real vibration profiles. It comprises two main parts: A fixed part, where the coils and the ME transducer are fixed in order to ensure a good reliability of the converter by avoiding wire movements. A moving part, where the moving magnet of the magnetic spring and the magnetic circuit are placed. The presented converter is reliable and compact, which is able to harvest energy with a maximum output power density of 0.11 mW/cm³ within a frequency bandwidth of 12 Hz for a resonance frequency of 24 Hz under an applied harmonic vibration with an amplitude of 1 mm.
