Description

Energy Harvesting (EH) also known as Energy scavenging is the use of ambient energy to provide electrical power for small electronic and electrical devices.

An Energy Harvesting System consists of an Energy Harvester Module and a processor/transmitter block. The Energy Harvester module captures milli-watts of energy from light, vibration, thermal or biological sources. A possible source of energy also comes from RF such as emitted from cell phone towers. The power is then conditioned and stored within a battery, an efficient quick charging capacitor or one of the newly developed thin film batteries. The system is then triggered at the required intervals to take a sensor reading, through a low power system. This data is then processed and transmitted to the base station. This kind of EH System eliminates the dependency of the system on battery power and reduces the need to service the system.
