We present numerical and semi analytical analyses describing the nonlinear relationship between the oscillating mass and the conditioning circuit. We believe this is a poorly understood facet of the device and, as we will portray, effects the potential harvested energy. An approach to determine the frequency shift due to the electromechanical coupling is presented and compared with novel experimental results. We provide some examples of bifurcation behaviour and show that the only source of nonlinearity is in the coupling between the electrical and mechanical domains. This work continues from the electrical analysis presented in Part 1, providing a full insight into the complex behaviour of the electromechanical coupling.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2015 IEEE||Keywords:||Electrostatic kinetic energy harvesters; Electromagnetic coupling; Steady-state oscillations; Multiple scale methods; Bifurcation analysis||DOI:||10.1109/TCSI.2015.2451913||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
