Hello HDLI,

I think you are thinking of this like it is a motor being driven by the coil.  My apologies for not explaining it well.  This is a generator or a linear alternator.  The magnet is being driven by an outside force at a constant oscillation and the circuit's current comes from the inductive force of the magnet on the coil.  When you put different resistive loads in the circuit (shown below), the force that will oppose the motion of the magnet will change because the current does and both should be able to be calculated by the software if my understanding is correct.
