Review of Power Conditioning for Kinetic Energy Harvesting Systems

  title={Review of Power Conditioning for Kinetic Energy Harvesting Systems},
  author={Gyorgy D. Szarka and B. H. Stark and S. Burrow},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics},
In this paper, a summary of published techniques for power conditioning within energy harvesting systems is presented. The focus is on low-power systems, e.g, <;10 mW, for kinetic energy harvesting. Published concepts are grouped according to functionality and results contrasted. The various techniques described are considered in terms of complexity, efficiency, quiescent power consumption, startup behavior, and utilization of the harvester compared to an optimum load. This paper concludes with… CONTINUE READING
