Wang, J.B., Wang, W.Y., Jewell, G.W. and Howe, D. (2002) A low-power, linear, permanent-magnet generator/energy storage system. IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, 49 (3). pp. 640-648. ISSN 0278-0046

This paper describes the design, analysis and characterization of a linear permanent magnet generator and capacitive energy storage system for generating electrical power from a single stroke of a salient-pole armature. It is suitable for applications that require relatively low levels of electrical power, such as remote electronic locks. An electromagnetic analysis of the generator is described, and a design optimization methodology for the system is presented. Finally, the performance of a prototype is validated against measurements
