In the few decades, the study of electro-mechanical systems which are capable to extract energy from an operating system in the environment has been of most importance. In this work, we present the extraction of energy from a simple portal frame structure excited by a harmonic force, where the energy harvesting is computed by using of a nonlinear piezoelectric material. The dynamical response of the system is examined, when there is 2:1 internal resonance between the symmetric and the sway mode, resulting the saturation phenomenon and vibration energy transfer between the symmetric (vertical) mode and the horizontal (sway) mode. An evaluation of the energy available for harvesting, in each of the considered modes, is computed.
