Energy Generating Outerwear
Laima Eglīte, Gaļina Terļecka, Juris Blūms

This study investigates whether energy harvesting systems can be integrated or placed in/on clothing. The first part of the study includes general information about smart clothing that is already made with integrated energy systems and different types of energy sources to operate energy harvesting systems. During this study a male jacket prototype with an integrated planar structure electrodynamic converter was made. Experiments were done to verify the harvesting system according to system location, components (it was decided to experiment with 2 and 3 coil connections in series) and textile layer thickness. It was concluded that many factors affect the trajectory of permanent magnets and the amount of generated energy.
