Attractor Selection in Nonlinear Energy Harvesting Using Deep Reinforcement Learning

by   Xue-She Wang, et al.
Duke University

Recent research efforts demonstrate that the intentional use of nonlinearity enhances the capabilities of energy harvesting systems. One of the primary challenges that arise in nonlinear harvesters is that nonlinearities can often result in multiple attractors with both desirable and undesirable responses that may co-exist. This paper presents a nonlinear energy harvester which is based on translation-to-rotational magnetic transmission and exhibits coexisting attractors with different levels of electric power output. In addition, a control method using deep reinforcement learning was proposed to realize attractor switching between coexisting attractors with constrained actuation.
