  • Energy-Aware Approaches for Energy Harvesting Powered Wireless Sensor Nodes

    Intensive research on energy harvesting powered wireless sensor nodes (WSNs) has been driven by the needs of reducing the power consumption by the WSNs and increasing the power generated by energy harvesters. The mismatch between the energy generated by the harvesters and the energy demanded by the WSNs is always a bottleneck as the ambient environmental energy is limited and time varying. This paper introduces a combined energy-aware interface with an energy-aware program to deal with the mismatch through managing the energy flow from the energy storage capacitor to the WSNs. These two energy-aware approaches were implemented in a custom developed vibration energy harvesting powered WSN. The experimental results show that, with the 3.2-mW power generated by a piezoelectric energy harvester under an emulated aircraft wing strain loading of 600 με at 10 Hz, the combined energy-aware approaches enable the WSN to have a significantly reduced sleep current from 28.3 μA of a commercial WSN to 0.95 μA and enable the WSN operations for a long active time of about 1.15 s in every 7.79 s to sample and transmit a large number of data (388 B), rather than a few ten milliseconds and a few bytes, as demanded by vibration measurement. When the approach was not used, the same amount of energy harvested was not able to power the WSN to start, not mentioning to enabling the WSN operation, which highlighted the importance and the value of the energy-aware approaches in enabling energy harvesting powered WSN operation successfully.

  • Network lifetime aware anchor selection for energy harvesting wireless sensor networks

    Advances in renewable energy harvesting technologies have initiated great possibilities in wireless sensor networks with energy harvesting nodes. Network lifetime now depends not only on the residual energy of the nodes but also on their energy harvesting rates. Mobility of data sink has added a new dimension to data collection techniques as well. This paper focuses on lifetime maximization of EHWSNs using an anchor selection algorithm which is regulated by an energy harvesting-aware weighted average function. The algorithm yields a set of EH-sensor nodes as anchors and a mobile data collector collects data from these anchors. The results of experiments show that our anchor selection algorithm out performs traditional lifetime maximization algorithms.

  • Unconventional wearable energy harvesting from human horizontal foot motion

    This paper presents an unconventional flat-type linear permanent magnetic generator based energy harvesting system which employs a cascaded boost-buck two-stage converter, with a maximum power control algorithm optimized for low frequency human horizontal foot motion, for Li-Ion battery charging. The dynamic model of the linear generator is built and the analytical equations for maximum power generation of non-resonant applications like human foot motion are derived. A double-sided stator linear machine with moving permanent magnet and soft magnetic spacer is designed. The Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is carried out on the designed geometric model to estimate the real-time voltage of energy harvester. A cascaded boost-buck converter with appropriate control is proposed to abstract maximum power from the linear generator and charge the Li-Ion battery with constant current at the same time. Under the typical human horizontal foot motion velocity of 4.5 m/s, the proposed energy harvester with the designed power conditioning circuit has power density as high as 8.5 mW/cm<sup>3</sup>.

  • An 82.1%-Power-Efficiency Single-Inductor Triple-Source Quad-Mode Energy Harvesting Interface with Automatic Source Selection and Reversely Polarized Energy Recycling

    In this paper, a single-inductor triple-source quad-mode energy harvesting interface with automatic source selection is developed for multi-source energy harvesting. The interface employs buck-boost topology to convert the energy from photovoltaic (PV) cells and thermoelectric generator (TEG) to a regulated 1.2-V output. The proposed converter has four operating modes: harvesting mode (HM), recycling mode (RM), storage mode (SM), and backup mode (BM). The operating mode is selected automatically according to the input and load conditions to appropriately transfer the energy. The proposed reversely polarized energy recycling (RPER) technique extends the available output power range by 10x with 25.3% efficiency improvement at low input voltage. The measurement results demonstrates the proposed interface achieves the peak efficiency of 82.1%.
