This paper reports the design, and testing of a water turbine generator system for typical flow rates in domestic applications, with an integrated power management and a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) based RF data transmission interface. It is based on a commercially available low cost hydro generator. The generator is built into a housing with optimized reduced fluidic resistance to enable operation with flow rates as low as 6 l/min. The power management combines rectification, buffering, defined… 

A Review of Energy Harvesting Techniques for Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs)

TLDR
The aim of this survey paper is to provide a detailed overview of the the existing LPWAN systems relying on energy harvesting for their powering, and, for each technology, the applied energy harvesting techniques will be described as well as the architecture of the power management units when present.

Energy Harvesting from Fluid Flow in Water Pipelines for Smart Metering Applications

In this paper a rotational, radial-flux energy harvester incorporating a three-phase generation principle is presented for converting energy from water flow in domestic water pipelines. The energy

Electrical current measurement system for energy harvesting applications

The measurement of the dynamic power consumption is an important task in the field of energy harvesting regarding the characterization and optimization of low power systems. This paper reports on the

Vibration harvesting in traffic tunnels to power wireless sensor nodes

TLDR
The measurement results showed that the vibrations at any location in the road tunnel and at the wall in the railway tunnel are too small for useful vibration harvesting, and the railway sleeper features usable vibrations and sufficient mounting space.

Harvesting energy from water flow over graphene.

TLDR
Tests involving water flow with various molarities of hydrochloric acid over few-layered graphene and report order of magnitude higher induced voltages for graphene as compared to nanotubes, indicating that the power generation is primarily caused by a net drift velocity of adsorbed Cl(-) ions on the continuous graphene film surface.
