This paper proposes, for the first time, an automated energy harvester design flow which is based on a single HDL software platform that can be used to model, simulate, configure and optimise energy harvester systems. A demonstrator prototype incorporating an electromagnetic mechanical-vibration-based micro-generator and a limited number of library models has been developed and a design case study has been carried out. Experimental measurements have validated the simulation results which show that the outcome from the design flow can improve the energy harvesting efficiency by 75%.
