Energy Harvesting Autonomous Sensor Systems: Design, Analysis, and Practical Implementation provides a wide range of coverage of various energy harvesting techniques to enable the development of a truly self-autonomous and sustainable energy harvesting wireless sensor network (EH-WSN). It supplies a practical overview of the entire EH-WSN system from energy source all the way to energy usage by wireless sensor nodes/network. Although the author focuses on small-scale energy harvesting, the systems discussed can be upsized to large-scale renewable energy harvesting systems. The book goes beyond theory to explore practical applications that not only solve real-life energy issues but pave the way for future work in this area.

Key Features:-

  • Outlines two wind energy harvesting (WEH) approaches, one using a wind turbine generator and one a p
  • Covers thermal energy harvesting (TEH) from ambient heat sources with low temperature differences
  • Presents two types of piezoelectric-based vibration energy harvesting systems to harvest impact or i
  • Examines hybrid energy harvesting approaches that augment the reliability of the wireless sensor nod
  • Discusses a hybrid wind and solar energy harvesting scheme to simultaneously use both energy sources
  • Explores a hybrid of indoor ambient light and TEH scheme that uses only one power management circuit
