Energy reuse is currently a very important subject, mainly to reduce the use of non renewable energy sources such as the transportation systems. The suspension system can be turned into a regenerative system by coupling an electrical circuit to it by an electromechanical transducer, such as a moving coil transducer, in order to reuse energy which would be dissipated by the damper. Real systems can present non linear behaviour due to its construction characteristics or physical behaviour, and sometimes the non linearities can bring positive effects. It is proposed to study an electromechanical suspension system with non linear resistance using continuation methods and experimental validation in order to evaluate its isolation, energy harvesting and handling stability, achieving an optimal condition. In this context, this project seeks obtained funding that allow Prof. Andrea Cammarano to visit the school of Engineering in Bauru. Prof. Andrea Cammarano has published several papers in this area and will assist in the completion of subjects developed in the student project. (AU)
