A wideband magnetic energy harvester is proposed by using a number of multiferroic composite fibers of different lengths which are connected in parallel or series. The structural theory is employed to characterize the magnetoelectroelastic behavior of the fibers. A global circuit analysis is then performed. It is shown that such a structure of energy harvester is capable of collecting the ambient magnetic energy over a wide frequency range.
