We study the performance of vibrational energy harvesting systems with piezoelectric and magnetic inductive transducers, assuming the power of external disturbance concentrated around a specific frequency. Both linear and nonlinear harvester models are considered. We use circuit theory and equivalent circuits to show that a large improvement in both the harvested energy and the power efficiency is obtained, for linear systems, through a proper reactive modification of the load. For nonlinear systems, we use methods of nonlinear dynamics to derive analytical formulae for the output voltage, the harvested energy and the power efficiency.We show that also for the nonlinear case, the modified load significantly boosts the performance.
