This book focused on the design optimization of application oriented electromagnetic vibration transducers. An essential part of the book considered the dimensioning of the magnet, the coil and if existent the back iron components in eight different commonly applied coupling architectures. With the established optimization procedure the optimal dimensions can be determined either for maximum output power or maximum output voltage generation. The results lead to an overall comparison of the coupling architectures. It was shown that the architectures inherently have different output power and output voltage generation capabilities. The best architectures have been identified and should be preferred in application whenever possible. An application oriented prototype development was realized to show how the optimization procedure can be integrated in the design–flow. The research in this book leads to further results which are summarized in the following.
