Magnetically forced extensional vibrations of laminated plates with piezoelectric and piezomagnetic layers are analyzed theoretically. It is shown that such a structure can be used to harvest magnetic energy and convert it to electric energy. The output power and the energy conversion efficiency are calculated. The load dependence of the magnetoelectric coupling coefficient is also obtained.
