Autonomous Low Power Microsystem Powered by Vibration Energy Harvesting

Torah, Russel, Tudor, John, Patel, Kartik, Ayala Garcia, Ivo and Beeby, Steve (2007) Autonomous Low Power Microsystem Powered by Vibration Energy Harvesting At IEEE Sensors 2007, United States. 28 - 31 Oct 2007.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


This paper reports, for the first time, the implementation of a microsystem powered entirely from ambient vibrations. Sufficient electrical energy is harvested to power a radio-frequency (RF) linked accelerometer based microsystem. The microsystem is energy aware and will adjust the measurement/transmit duty cycle according to the available energy; this is typically every 50 seconds during normal operation. The system is fully powered from 45?Wrms scavenged by a miniature electromagnetic (EM) vibration energy harvester of volume ?150mm3 from a modest vibration level of 0.6ms-2
