In the present paper, a quasi-periodic vibration energy harvester with magnetic coupling is proposed using the benefits of the energy localization. The proposed quasi-periodic system consists of moving magnets held by elastic structures and coupled by a magnetic force. The mistuning of the device can be achieved by changing either the linear mechanical stiffness or the mass. The whole system has been modelled by forced Duffing equations for each degree of freedom, which include the magnetic nonlinearity and the mechanical damping. The governing equations have then been solved using the harmonic balance method coupled with the asymptotic numerical method. The obtained numerical results show that the total harvested power was increased by 11 % with a bandwidth of 2.7 % thanks to the energy localization phenomenon compared to the reference case.
