In addition to the wide range of applications of stochastic resonance in the field of signal processing, the phenomenon has also been investigated as an effective tool for enhancing vibrational energy harvesting. This paper proposes a hypothetical method for achieving stochastic resonance and increasing the available energy from external ambient vibration. In order to illustrate this proposal, a bistable mechanical system is proposed to study the feasibility by theoretical analysis. The amount of available energy and the energy consumed to produce the small-scale additional force is analyzed through numerical simulations. It is shown that the proposed method can significantly enhance the harvested vibrational energy.
