Remote area wind energy harvesting for low-power autonomous sensors

  title={Remote area wind energy harvesting for low-power autonomous sensors},
  author={Michael A. Weimer and Thurein S. Paing and Regan Zane},
A growing demand for deployment of autonomous sensors and sensor networks is leading to a subsequent increase in the demand for localized, independent energy harvesting capabilities for each node. In this paper, a method of remote area wind energy harvesting is presented, with a focus on an anemometer-based solution. By utilizing the motion of the anemometer shaft to turn a compact alternator, small amounts of power can be harvested from otherwise unavailable sources. Energy harvested is… CONTINUE READING
