True Grid Independence: Robust Energy Harvesting System for Wireless Sensors Uses Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting Power Supply and Li-Poly Batteries with Shunt Charger

There is an emerging and potentially large market for wireless sensors. By their very nature, wireless sensors are chosen for use in inaccessible places, or for applications that require large numbers of sensors—too many to easily hardwire to a data network. In most cases, it is impractical for these systems to run off primary batteries.

The Energy Harvesting Tipping Point for Wireless Sensor Applications

Ever since the first watermills and windmills were used to generate electricity, energy harvesting has been an attractive source of energy with great potential. In recent years, energy harvesting technology has become more sophisticated and efficient, and energy storage technologies, such as supercapacitors and thin-film batteries (TFBs), have become more cost-effective.

Low-Voltage Energy Harvesting

Over the past few years, the technology of energy harvesting has emerged from the laboratory to the marketplace. In practice, however, it has been difficult to efficiently capture the ambient or waste energy generated by many practical devices suited for this purpose, due to their very low voltage and power outputs.

MicroPower step-up low-voltage booster module enables practical energy capture from low-power generators

Advanced Linear Devices Inc., announces the release of a new family of MicroPower Step-up Low-Voltage Booster Modules. Designated the ALD EH4200 Series, these printed circuit board modules are designed to step-up or boost the output voltage of certain popular energy generators, which by themselves are unable to initiate the electronic capture process for efficiently harvesting ambient or waste energy.

Ultra Low Power Meets Energy Harvesting

Macro-scale energy harvesting technologies in the form of windmills, watermills and passive solar power systems have been around for centuries. Now, as designers seek to cut the cords, they turn to microenergy harvesting systems that can scavenge milliwatts from solar, vibrational, thermal and biological sources. However, understanding ultra-low power from the sourcing side brings challenges as harvested power derived from ambient sources tends to be unregulated, intermittent and small.
