This paper presents a conception of the harvester-absorber system consisting of two parts. The first is the pendulum attached to the main system (oscillator), which is suspended on the linear damper and the nonlinear spring made of shape memory alloy. The spring is modelled as a polynomial function based on Landau–Ginzburg theory of phase transitions (similar as ferroelectric and ferromagnets). The obtained results show, that SMA element can increase harvesting energy level, while the absorber effect can be impaired (but not loss). Additionally, introducing SMA element causes changes in dynamics, introduces a new unstable solutions and bifurcations. The analysis was done by classical integration and continuation solution methods.
